Charades, Anyone?




Charade Number One

My first means to work
And carefully tend;
My next is a part
That will usefully bend;
My whole will remind you
Of someone who’s nice,
And then of another
You’d not visit twice.
Charade Number Two

If my first you would unravel,
Then increase the speed you travel,
Seeking sunlight, you’d be reckoned
Optimistic in my second,
For my whole recall a maiden
With love’s burden overladen.


Number One: Tilney

Number Two: Dashwood
