SMILE AND NEVER HEED ME, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Though, when other maids stand by
Last Line: Then -- thou then -- mayst heed me!
Subject(s): Love - Beginnings


THOUGH, when other maids stand by,
I may deign thee no reply,
Turn not then away, and sigh, --
Smile, and never heed me!
If our love, indeed, be such
As must thrill at every touch,
Why should others learn as much? --
Smile, and never heed me!
Even if, with maiden pride,
I should bid thee quit my side,
Take this lesson for thy guide, --
Smile, and never heed me!
But when stars and twilight meet,
And the dew is falling sweet,
And thou hear'st my coming feet, --
Then -- thou then -- mayst heed me!
