FLITTING fancy, blithe and free,
Often have I thought of thee!
How we sat by babbling brook,
Sunny meadow, shady nook.
Hazel eyes looked into mine,
Soulful, rapturous, divine.

Every glance and every sigh, --
Actions thou might now deny, --
Speechless speech, unspoken vow, --
These were darts from Eros' bow!
Flitting fancy, blithe and free,
Dost thou love as I love thee?

Gentle youth, so gay and free,
Seldom have I thought of thee;
How we sat by babbling brook,
Sunny field or shady nook.
Dark blue eyes looked into mine, --
They were roguish, not divine!

Every glance and every sigh, --
Actions you cannot deny, --
Were only efforts made in vain!
Cupid's arts we cannot feign:
Both were guilty, don't you see?
Love you? No, nor dost thou me.
