I see her every day
As she passes down the way,
Which before my window lies;
With an air of charming grace
And her pretty smiling face
So full of hope aud glad surprise.
How she trips so lightly by,
Willi her manners coy and shy,
And her fascinating ways;
With her laughter like an elf
And n form so like a sylph,
Welcome as the sunbeam rays.
With a costume most Switching,
How she sets my heartstrings twitching,
To the tune of a merry little dance;
When through her drooping lashes,
Swift as a meteor in its flashes,
I catch the winning sweetness of her glance.
How I envy all the grasses
That salute her as she passes,
Bowing in their reverence there;
And tlie branches indiscreet,
Bending down her lips to greet,
That linger in the meshes of her hair.
Could I like the flowers address her,
Could I like the boughs carress her,
Then my joy would be complete.
For there's naught in the vain pursuing
But there's worlds in the gentle wooing
Of a maiden so coy and sweet.
