    Erro Ergo Sum

    Oh, to express, with worthy stress,
    And real success, the heartiness
    With which I bless the manliness
    And charm of chess.
    For who can guess what broad excess
    Of steadiness and thoughtfulness
    One must possess, so that success
    May crown one’s chess?
    And I confess that no duress,
    Or dire distress, could e’er repress
    The eagerness with which I press
    To play at chess.
    No pitiless fair sorceress,
    By soft caress, or looks or dress,
    Could dispossess me of my, – yes!
    My love of chess.
