MAIDEN EYES

By
Gerald Griffin
1803 - 1840


&/\&/\&

You never bade me hope, 'tis true;

I ask'd you not to swear:

But I look'd in those eyes of blue,

And read a promise there.
 

The vow should bind, with maiden sighs

That maiden lips have spoken:

But that which looks from maiden eyes

Should last of all be broken.
 

&/\&/\&
