There Was A Land Where Lived No Violets
by [?]


There was a land where lived no violets.
A traveller at once demanded: “Why?”
The people told him:
“Once the violets of this place spoke thus:
“‘Until some woman freely give her lover
“‘To another woman
“‘We will fight in bloody scuffle.'”
Sadly the people added:
“There are no violets here.”
