Charity’s Other Names

Charity, Charity, your name is Charity,
And yet you won’t give me a kiss.
“My first name’s Charity, but middle is this:
Don’t-give-a-thing-you-will-miss.”

Then what is your last name, Charity dear;
What is your last name? Tell.
“Why, it echoes with never
And goes on forever and ever and ever.”
