MISSING - a dimple, since early this morning
Lately belonging to Marjorie Ann
Disappeared suddenly, quite without warning
Last seen at table when breakfast began.

Was it the porridge or was it the weather?
(It might have been merely the fact that it rained)
Out went the sun and the dimple together
But Marjorie Ann and the porridge remained.

Dimple and sun wandered sadly away then
While down the cold window their bright teardrops ran
"It seems that she doesn¹t want dimples today, then"
"NASTY ol' porridge," said Marjorie Ann.

Missing a dimple, since early this morning
Will somebody find it, if anyone can
It can't have gone far for it went without warning
So kindly return it to Marjorie Ann.'
