And she has grown *o dear, so dear,
That I would be t|e jewel
That tremblea at her ear:
For. bid in ringlets day and night,
I ’d touch her neck so warm and white.
And I would be the girdle
About her dainty, dainty waist,
And her heart would beat against me
In sorrow and in rest:
And I should know if it beat right,
I ’d clasp it round so close aud tight.
And I would be her necklace,
And ali day long to fall and rise
Upon ber balmy bosom,
With her laughter or ber sighs,
