A SEAT FOR THREE



"A SEAT for three, where host and guest
     May side-by-side pass toast or jest;
     And be their number two or three,
     With elbow-room and liberty,
What need to wander east or west?

"A book for thought, a nook for rest
And meet for fasting or for fest,
     In fair and equal parts to be
                       A seat for three.

"Then give you pleasant company,
For youth or elder shady tree;
     A roof for council or sequest,
A corner in a homely nest;
     Free, equal, and fraternally
                       A seat for three."

                                        WALTER CRANE
