Dear Pete
   Take the spade of perseverance
   Dig the field of progress wide
   Every rotten root of friction
   Hurry out and cast asid.

Dear Pete,
  If I could have my dearest wish come true,
  And make my choice of all earth's treasures too,
  Or choose from heaven whatso'er I willed
  I'd ask for you
