Truth, Love, Virtue

posted by TeaHouseTimes Admin, ADMINTuesday, March 5th 2013 @ 3:44 PM

The Pledge of Love

Quick the pulse of flutt’ring heart,
When the lover we descry,
Fast approaching, to impart
Welcome tale of Constancy.

Slowly beats the fainting heart,
When the lover bids adieu,
Yet, unwilling to depart,
Breaking off the interview.

Lady hast thou ever known,
Honest word of such delight,
Lover, calling thee his own,
Giving thee his sacred plight!

Take, O take the Pledge of Love.
Ever ever faithful boon,
Long may constant Lovers prove
Life is but a Honey Moon.

 

A Gentleman Making His Bow

To be in love! ah who would be!
   If love be what it seems,
The strangest kind of mystery,
   Made up of thoughts and dreams.
Yet strange it seems, we all must prove,
Our best regard for faithful Love.

One proves it thus, by sighs and tears,
   Another by his smiles,
Another by his hopes and fears,
   Another by his wiles:
But all who love in early youth,
Will prove it best by words of truth.

Some love to write, and some to speak,
   Some know not how to feel,
Some will be wise, and some be weak,
   And some delight to kneel.
But write, or speak, or kneel at will,
Your word of honor, Sir, fulfill.

This Gentleman it seems has felt,
   And now his love would tell:
O pray Sir have you ever knelt?
   If so, you know it well.
Go hasten then, and make your bow,
But never alter in your vow.
