Here you will find the Poem Caught in the Undertow of poet Christopher Morley

Caught in the Undertow

COLIN, worshipping some frail, 
By self-deception sways her: 
Calls himself unworthy male, 
Hardly even fit to praise her.

But this tactic insincere 
In the upshot greatly grieves him 
When he finds the lovely dear 
Quite implicitly believes him.
