[Illustration: The last photograph of O. Henry, taken by W. M. Vanderwayde (New York) in 1909]

O. Henry, Afrite Chef of all delight Of all delectables conglomerate That stay the starved brain and rejuvenate The Mental Man! The ├Žsthetic appetite So long enhungered that the "inards" fight And growl gutwise its pangs thou dost abate And all so amiably alleviate, Joy pats his belly as a hobo might Who haply hath obtained a cherry pie With no burnt crust at all, ner any seeds; Nothin' but crisp crust, and the thickness fit. And squashin' juicy, an' jes' mighty nigh Too dratted, drippin' sweet for human needs, But fer the sosh of milk that goes with it.

Written in the character of "Sherrard Plummer" by James Whitcomb Riley
