THE FLIRT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A pretty game, my girl
Last Line: The shame sits on thy knee.
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Flirtation; Love


A PRETTY game, my girl,
To play with me so long;
Until this other lover
Comes dancing to thy song,
And my affair is over.

But love, though well adored,
Is not my only note:
So let thy false love-prattle
Be in another man's throat
That weaker man's death-rattle.

Ah, such as thou, at last,
Wilt take a false man's hand:
Think kindly then of me,
When thou'rt forsaken, and
The shame sits on thy knee.
