WE walked about at Hampton Court,
Alone in sunny weather,
And talked -- half earnest, and half sport,
Linked arm in arm together.

I pressed her hand upon the steps.
Its warmest light the sky lent.
She sought the shade: I sought her lips:
We kissed: and then were silent.

Clare thought, no doubt, of many things,
Besides the kiss I stole there; --
The sun, and sunny founts in rings,
The bliss of soul with soul there,

The bonnet, fresh from France, she wore,
My praise of how she wore it,
The arms above the carven door,
The orange-trees before it; --

But I could only think, as, mute
I watched her happy smile there,
With rising pain, of this curst boot,
That pinched me all the while there.
