Hephzibah with the variations

HEPHZIBAH WITH THE VARIATIONS.

Near Georgia's Eastern boundary line,

Embowered in groves of oak and pine,

From city's dust and din remote,

There lies a rural town of note.

Of note we mean not for its size,

Nor wealth that in its coffers lies,

Yet noted still and known to fame

For its peculiar much-spelled name.

It matters little where or when

The place received its cognomen,

No name in old or modern days

Is spelled in half so many ways.

A postal friend whose inclinations

Leads him to note these variations.

Has more than eighty on his list

In which the name was spelled and—missed.

A few of these we quote below

The names capacity to show

With every varied transformation

To stir a mail clerk's indignation.

There's Hepsheber and H-ephsibah

With sometimes "h" and sometimes "r"

And Hepicomb and Hexabee

And Hepsibagh with an extra "g."

There's Hepsiville and Hepsebell

And Hepheibal with a single "1"

There's Hephsabeth and Hepsivar

Hephizibel, Hesphizibah.

There's Hephisbar, Hepsebia,

Hexperberville and Hipsibah,

There's Hepsebal, Hepzibui

And Hepbestya knocked into pi.

There s Hepsidar by a son of Ham

That looks a little like Hepsidam,

And Hepsyrbur spelled with a "y"

That beats Bill Arp's orthography.

But space would fail for me to tell

Of each and every awful "spell"

That has attacked our village name

And yet it lives on "all the same."

And now if they will read with care

The Book of Kings and then Isaiah,

The scribling public near and far

May learn to spell it HEPH-ZI-BAH.
