A casement window's a magic thing,
Old romances about it cling --
And if yours looks out on your garden too,
Add moonlight and see what it does to you.

Abelard, Villon, and Romeo,
Poets and lovers of long ago,
Lifted their plea to a casement high,
Gayly determined to love or die.

When I lean out from my casement white
O'er my garden sweet in the bright moonlight
Great lovers are there mid the blossoms met
And I'm Heloise, Marie, or Juliet.

A casement window's a magic thing,
Opening wide with impetuous fling;
Whoever did anything sweetly rash
After prudently lifting a window sash?
