On "Planchefto's" stiAbordl heart,
Querying silently tile flifle
Witb faces held apart.
"Which does he love, tell we, Planchet t e?"
Fair Lily softly said.
'-Whioh does he love?" said queenly Rose,
Bending her haughty head.
The white henj ti-ff#f8ed like a dove,
The brown one fashed its ring,
And still the pencil wrote no word,
Dragged, lilfe a sullen thing.
Whille quiet tansy, looking on,
Waltet its pranks to see:
Foldittg Hder secret in her heart,
Softlf dftd Ailently.
"Come hIiflier ansy." Like a dove
A small inud trembling fell,
When like a ialrd, uncanny thing,
The board obeyed her 9611.
'Wrote "Y-o-u," Ol I wiso Planchet to,

"May I one edrffest question ask,

It answers fVdisy.'
She has fled

She saw the question in his eye,
And needs to know no more.
