A setting of the epigraph from the opening of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel 'The Great Gatsby'. The words are attributed to Thomas Parke D'Invilliers, a pen-name of Fitzgerald's.


Then wear the gold hat, if that will move her;
If you can bounce high, bounce for her too,
Till she cry “Lover, gold-hatted, high-bouncing lover,
I must have you!”
