THE FRIVOLOUS GIRL, by                    
First Line: Her eyes were bright and merry
Last Line: "while the gossips say, ""would you think it, / of only a frivolous girl?"
Subject(s): Youth

HER eyes were bright and merry,
She danced in the mazy whirl;
She took the world in its sunshine,
For she was a frivolous girl.

She dressed like a royal princess,
She wore her hair in a curl;
The gossips said, "What a pity
That she's such a frivolous girl!"


She's a wife, a mother, a woman,
Grand, noble, and pure as a pearl;
While the gossips say, "Would you think it,
Of only a frivolous girl?"
