"I Cannot Help it Now."
How well I knew her childhood,
Its blossoms sweet und fair,
When rounded into beauty,
A dower beyond compare;
I watched the little cherub, i .
The glory of her eye
And recognized the heaven
Within its cloudless sky.
1 also knew her girlhood,
Its graces all her own;
It seemed a very fairy,
Titnuia on her ihrouu.
And 1 confess, I watched her,
Like other foolish men;
Until tnv heart grew earnest,
1 could not help it then.
The years that eamo unuotiocd
With memories sweet were strown,
And when this noblclady
To womanhood bad grown,
She wore its crown, so queenly
That with a daring pen
I wrote and, trembling, told her-?
1 could not help it, then.
She smiled and left it dreaming
Forever in my heart,
I turned and saw her acting,
In woman's suprctuust part;
And musing there, 1 watched her
ltepeat the solemn vow ;
I 6aw her and I loved her,
And 1 cannot help it, now.
