VERSES WRITTEN IN AN ALBUM OF A LADY'S COMMON-PLACE BOOK, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: Here is one leaf reserved for me
Last Line: To write my name forever there!
Alternate Author Name(s): Little, Thomas
Variant Title(s): Written In The Blank Leap
Subject(s): Admiration

HERE is one leaf reserved for me,
From all thy sweet memorials free;
And here my simple song might tell
The feelings thou must guess so well.
But could I thus, within thy mind,
One little vacant corner find,
Where no impression yet is seen,
Where no memorial yet has been,
O, it should be my sweetest care
To write my name forever there!
