OutsUlo tho window they could boo

Whoso twigs otico trembled with tho glee
Of Eiimmer's swallows.
And wlillo upon this scono Intent ,
They gazed, a my of sentiment
Appeared, and conversation went .
Bomowhat an follows:
"Clarissa" hero ho paused n while
To contcmplato Clarissa's smllo . s
And polish uphls verbal stylo; "
She, lightly drumming
Her fingers ou tho window, lest,
KmbatTosscd, ho forget tho rest,
Oavo him n chance and meanwhile guessed
Just wliat was coming,
"Clarissa" hero ho took her band ,
To help his rhetoric to land;
Bho let him hold tho fingers, and, r
Ily squcczo Judicious,
And gcntlo turning of her head, .
Bho punctuated what ho said fr
An action which, Interpreted,
Meant "How delicious I" S
'Clftrivn, darling" after thcio
Ho suffered an cmphntlo squcczo
"I love you" hero upon his knees,
lu truo dovotlon,
Ho knelt before Clarissa, who
Was all uncertain what to do;
Her heart seemed practicing a now
Tlicn, llko a fervent worshiper,
Ho told bis In'ods of lovo to her;
Said bo: "Clarissa, 1 prefer
To mako llfo's journey
Along tho paths of Paradise"
Ho said that scutenco over twice,
And thought it Hounded rather nlco
For on. attorney.
"I'm poor," ho said (Lovo'o truest art
Makes this a sotto voce part),
"nut if you'll promlso mo your heart
In sweet surrender,
Wo shall not want for sordid gold;
Clarissa, you are wealth untold
You nro" tho metaphor was bold
"My legal tender."
