Solution of Charade

BY A MARRIED LADY .

W ITH impatience like that of my Surbiton lover,
Your Charade I attempted in vain to discover;
Tho' I puzzled my thoughts with a harp and a fiddle,
They were flounder'd at last, and were stuck in the middle.
When my Husband observ'd, and I fear he was right,
In your BAND-BOX , my dear, is a beautiful sight.
Choak'd with envy, I answer'd, " If that's what you mean,
It's quite lost in a band-box; I'd have it BE — SEEN . "
