n.— «I would that I a sky lark were/To sing sweet songs of love/That I could leave the earth below/And soar far, far above.…But I don’t know now after all/If that would be much fun/Some bobo’d probably crack me up/At long range with a gun.» —“A Preference” by Ima Helldiver Sheboygan Press (Wisconsin) Dec. 17, 1907. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
