    What holy rites Mohammed's laws ordain,
    What various duties bind his faithful train,--
    What pious zeal his scatter'd tribes unites
    In fix'd observance of these holy rites,--

Robert Service Poem
Her Toys
 by Robert Service

I sat her in her baby chair,
And set upon its tray
Her kewpie doll and teddy bear,
But no, she would not play.
Although they looked so wistfully
Her favour to implore,
She laughed at me with elfin glee
And dashed them to the floor.
