Mr. Darcy initially feels appalled

When he meets the Bennet’s while at a ball

He kept being thrown together with them by chance

And even had to suffer a dance

With Lizzie and her unwavering wit

Which had him feeling quite like a twit

Still he held onto his pride

While asking her to become his bride

She said no and refused his hand

Which caused him to leave for his land

But caused the truth to eventually be known

And Mr. Wickham’s true character shown

Lizzie and Mr. Darcy eventually reconcile

And agree to marry in a short while

Which led this dear reader to believe

That true love can eventually be achieved
