WHAT LOVE IS.
It's a sort of palpitation,
In the vital habitation
Of the heart.
Evervescen t osculation -
In ColtinltiOis rotation
Forms a part.
A respectful invitation
To t very choice collnation,
Lovely ride of long (uration
in his cart.
Con fideniial conversation,
No attempted ostentation,
Never ceasing admiration
On his part.
Carmels without cessation,
Form, inl my imagination,
