29. Japanesque
OH, where the white quince blossom swings 
  I love to take my Japan ease! 
I love the maid Anise who clings 
  So lightly on my Japan knees; 
I love the little song she sings,         5
  The little love-song Japanese. 
I almost love the lute's tink-tunkle 
  Played by that charming Jap Anise— 
For am I not her old Jap uncle? 
  And is she not my Japan niece?  10
