SPARKING OR COURTING
I'se heaps older dan three. I'se heaps thicker dan barks; An' de older I gits, De mo' harder I sparks.
I sparks fast an' hard, For I'se feared I mought fail. Dough I'se gittin' ole, I don't co't lak no snail.
A CLANDESTINE LETTER
Kind Miss: If I sent you a letter, By de crickets, Through de thickets, How'd you answer better?
Kind Suh: I'd sen' you a letter, By de mole, Not to be tol'; Fer dat's mo' secretter.
