First Line: Stand not uttering sedately
Last Line: Let's not say dull things about her.
Subject(s): Love; Promiscuity

Stand not uttering sedately
Trite oblivious praise above her!
Rather say you saw her lately
Lightly kissing her last lover.

Whisper not, 'There is a reason
Why we bring her no white blossom:'
Since the snowy bloom's in season
Strow it on her sleeping bosom:

Oh, for it would be a pity
To o'erpraise her or to flout her:
She was wild, and sweet, and witty --
Let's not say dull things about her.
