Actually, that first poem was changed by her editor. Here's what Emmy originally wrote. (This is true, because she gave me the original one night when we were sitting around the Fowled Anchor, drinking hot buttered rum and bellowing out ribald songs.)

That lawful orchards mocks;

Has soaked the dirty socks!
