Cupid

Cupid

Wilda Morris

With two repeated lines from A Midsummer Night’s Dream
by William Shakespeare

Cupid is a knavish lad,
mischievous as any child
thus to make poor females mad.

When he shoots a great dyad,
wound and flame are reconciled.
Cupid is a knavish lad,

playful is he, more than bad—
or so you think when you’re beguiled.
Thus to make poor females mad,

he winks his eye and plays the cad,
lets his arrows fly off wild.
Cupid is a knavish lad.

When men think that love’s a fad,
they play tricks on those who smiled
thus to make poor females mad.

Oft his arrows still go bad.
Many heartaches he’s compiled.
Cupid is a knavish lad
thus to make poor females mad.
