Excerpt from book:
The "tees" shall be the sort from which One drives two hundred yards, at least, While over hurdle, bunker, ditch The balls shall rise as tho' of yeast; The niblicks, mashies and the cleeks Shall never miss or make a slip, While only he who Scottish speaks Shall have a card of membership. Here on this field of perfect strokes I'll play a winning game with all Who beat me when on earth, the folks Who think I cannot hit the ball. And best of all, the games between, When o'er my nectar I am heard My triumphs to recount, I ween, There'll not be one to doubt my word. A BALLADE OF GIRLS. Who would not pause to drink a toast, To pledge the health of maidens fair, While thinking still of her who most Excells in wit and beauty rare? Who would not thus one moment spare For love's devoir, while onward whirls The world with all its sordid care?— A health, I say, to lovely girls! What man of us is too engrossed, Too busied with the world's affair, An instant to desert his post And drink to damsels debonair? Nor need he fear lest he forswear Himself in pledging flaxen curls, If she he loves have raven hair— A health, I say, to lovely girls 1 And so this glass to beauty's host! A pledge in which we all may share— 'Tis only thus that we may boast The smiles of her without compare, The one for whom we each would dare And die the death amid the swirls Of cannon's smoke and battle's flare— A health, I say, to lovely girls! L'Envoi. Let lovers join us everywhere— We have no part with carping churls Who laugh to scorn love's sweetest snare— A health, a health to lovely girls!

The "tees" shall be the sort from which One drives two hundred yards, at least, While over hurdle, bunker, ditch The balls shall rise as tho' of yeast; The niblicks, mashies and the cleeks Shall never miss or make a slip, While only he who Scottish speaks Shall have a card of membership. Here on this field of perfect strokes I'll play a winning game with all Who beat me when on earth, the folks Who think I cannot hit the ball. And best of all, the games between, When o'er my nectar I am heard My triumphs to recount, I ween, There'll not be one to doubt my word. A BALLADE OF GIRLS. Who would not pause to drink a toast, To pledge the health of maidens fair, While thinking still of her who most Excells in wit and beauty rare? Who would not thus one moment spare For love's devoir, while onward whirls The world with all its sordid care? A health, I say, to lovely girls! What man of us is too engrossed, Too busied with the world's affair, An instant to desert his post And drink to damsels debonair?
