Subject(s): Lent

PRISCILLA is a maid devout
In this repentant season,
And to the world and all its ways
Has vowed a pious treason.

Sweet little saint, so shy, demure! --
Though long I've tried to win her
I fear that I'm not in it with
Some other lucky sinner.

For when I begged she'd trust her heart
To me, and o'er her bent,
She blushed and softly murmured,
"How can I when it's Lent."
