Verses 1& 2 side by side
Life's Like That: a contrapuntal poem
Verses 1 and 2

She scoops dirt around the broken sprig. 
That should fix it.
Why did she ever think it would survive?
She whispered: you have to be tough little one.

The night wind was too severe
 And so he had to call to break the date.
Her hopes would be shattered;
When he cancelled, he knew.
