All day they walked,
the marathon was a success,
followed by her first banquet,
she wore a delicate dress.
The men all began whistling,
as soon as she walked in the door,
her perplexity apparent,
but then her smile soared.
She was greeted with hospitality,
with a mother-of-pearl around her neck,
she was delighted when she realized,
she would not pick up this check.
The room was filled with tiny tea cups,
white chocolate truffles and dessert plates,
she asked the gentleman to her left,
"will you catch me if I fall,"
this spread is quite too large,
I cannot eat it all.
