Subject(s): Love; Puberty

HER wonted smiles are turned to frowns,
Her laugh a sigh,
Sackcloth and ashes for ball gowns --
Ah, luckless I.

While worldly thoughts away are gone, --
Her Lenten part, --
Does Cupid blunt his darts upon
A stony heart?

Ah, though her mirth and jollities
She puts aside,
The silent laughter of her eyes
She cannot hide.
