'Twai little either had to say -
She was so strange and I so shy.
But yepwe loved. indiffere~nt things
TheProuting buds, the birds in tune

With rosy links frot June to June.
For her, what tai lo do -or dare ?
What peril ten"t ? what, hardship bear I
But with her-ah! she never knew. -
My heart, and what was hidden thre ?
And she. with me, so cold and coy,
Seemed a lit tle maid .bereft of sense;
But in the crowd, all life andjoy,
And full of bluahful.impudenoe.
Sha married.-woll-a woman needs ..
A mat4, her life and love to share
And little cares sprang up like wdeds,
And played uround her elbow chair.
And years rolled by-but 1, content,
'[rimnned my one lamp and dept it bright,
Till age's touch. my hair bespreft
With r$ys and gleams of silver light.
And then it chanced, I took the'book
Which she perused in days gone by;
And as I read, such a passion shook
My soul-I needs must ourse or cry.
For here and there her love was writ,
In old, half-faded pencl sigas,
s As if she yielded-bit by bit
Uer heart in dots and underlines.
