Subject(s): Earrings

I KNEW a maiden fair and sweet,
Whom I had loved for years.
At last one day I told her this,
Although with many fears.

At first she did not say a word,
Then in a pleasant way
She looked out to the west, and said:
"It is a pleasant day."

She had not heard a single word,
She's told me since with tears;
She wore her hair, as some girls will,
Down over both her ears.
