A BASHFUL LOVER, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Away the changing seasons roll
Last Line: Tis sympathy.
Alternate Author Name(s): Old Simon; S.
Subject(s): Love

AWAY the changing seasons roll,
Louisa still has all my soul,
And still in torturing doubt I rove;
And dare not know if fortune frown,
Or if the bliss be mine to own
Louisa's love.

When, as the airy dance we twine,
Her rosy fingers mix with mine,
A wild emotion thrills my frame
But oh what transports fill my mind,
When by her trembling touch I find
She feels the same.

To banquet on her heavenly bloom
With steadfast gaze, I ne'er presume,
But fearful steal a side-long view,
And oft, o'erwhelm'd with glad surprise,
Bent on my face, I meet her eyes
Of liquid blue.

Confus'd we quickly look away,
And seem with careless thoughts to stray,
But strive to rule our eyes in vain;
The truants ever turn askance,
Until with sudden, timid glance,
They meet again.

Oh, to the winds thy sorrows give,
No more in doubt, Rosario, live,
But trust who sweetly whispers thee;
'Thou sighest for Louisa's arms,
As soft a wish her bosom warms,
'Tis sympathy.
