Mr. Browning rests under a tree with his love, Ms. Barrett, having trouble finishing his poem: "Roses are red/Violets are blue/Sugar is sweet/and I love..." The Sons of Poetry show up and give some potential rhymes, such as "shoe" and "moo." Ms. Barrett tries to point out it's her he loves, but when they suggest "stew" as a rhyme, he accepts it, claiming to love stew. Ms. Barrett, jilted, rides off with the Sons of Poetry, leaving Mr. Browning alone in the field.
He is a caricature of the famous Victorian poet, Robert Browning.
