LYNTON VERSES: 1, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: May margery of lynton
Last Line: Ah, who, may margery?
Alternate Author Name(s): Brown, T. E.
Subject(s): Love

Is brighter than the day;
Her eye is like the sun in heaven --
Was ne'er so sweet a May!

May Margery has learnt a tune
To which her soul is set --
The voices of all happy things
Are in its cadence met --
The voices of all happy things
In air, and earth, and sea,
Make music in the little breast
Of sweet May Margery.

And has May Margery a heart?
Nay, child, God give thee grace!
He made it for thee years ago,
And keeps it in a place --
The heart of gold that shall be thine --
But who shall have the key
That opens it -- Ah, who? ah, who?
Ah, who, May Margery?
