AT Eastertide, in gown of blue,
And dainty bonnet, neat and new,
With downcast eye whose fringed lid
A sunny sky of azure hid,
Across the aisle sat merry Prue.

Above the crimson-cushioned pew
I watched her as the moments flew,
And wondered if she knew I did,
At Eastertide.

The sunlight poured the oriel through;
I envied what it dared to do, --
To clasp her fingers clad in kid,
And hold and kiss them unforbid.
I'll take the hint, -- pray, wouldn't you,
At Eastertide?
