    This one always scared me as a kid.

    So, the next night, I went out.
    I had to do an errand,
    Had to pick a peck of Snide
    In a dark and gloomy Snide-field
    That was almost nine miles wide.

    I said, “I do not fear those pants
    With nobody inside them.”

    I said, and said, and said those words.
    I said them. But I lied them.

    Then I reached inside a Snide bush
    And the next thing that I knew,
    I felt my hand touch someone!

    I didn't think anyone else knew this classic. It still scares me when I read it to the grandkids :)

    For of all sad words of tongue or pen
    The saddest are these "It might have been"

    Maud Muller is, the saddest poem I have ever read. The line, "It might have been" is such a sad, yea, tragic line that can be applied to so many situations.
