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.
