Best Wishes, Carole Lombard

That Little guy who spills the moonlight
Over every garden trail, 
Who plugs our hearts with silver darts,
And weaves of dreams a bridal veil;
That little guy who writes the rules
For Love's sweet and exotic fable, 
Can scribble, with a flourish, now,
"Finis: Miss Lombard…. Mr. Gable."


Your Hollywood which manufactures 
Reels of Romance by the day,
Which gives us love in plain and fancy
Styles from Nome to Mandalay,
Which serves us thrills in double features,
Now, it seems, has turned the tables;
One slice of Paradise released,
Not for the world… but for the Gables!


A grin… a pair of ears… and then
A dinner… orchids... tender sighs…
A girl who found new ecstasy
With looking into someone's eyes…
A ring… a promise… can she cook!!!
But never mind, if Love be able
To capture all the joy we wish
For Mr. Gable and Mrs. Gable
