To her friends said the Bright one in chatter

Original Text: 
William S. Baring-Gould, The Lure of the Limerick: An Uninhibited History (New York: Clarkson N. Potter, 1967): 6.
1To her friends said the Bright one in chatter,
3    My speed was so great,
4    Much increased was my weight,
5Yet I failed to become any fatter!"
