Miss Nellie Stewart says that Christian Science enables her to make those associated with her happy.
Today, Sweet Nell. But, yesterday? What science was it then That helped you drive dull care away And gladden hearts of men? Upon a long-gone night of nights We saw you smiling, fair, Trip on the stage in silken tights -- And Happiness was there. 'Twas never Christian Science then, Memory must confess, That helped you move a throng of men To eager happiness. No science gave you there so well To play the Fairy's part; But rather, shall we say, Sweet Nell, Just good, clean, Pagan Art.
The Mooch of Life
