- Meet me by moonlight alone,
And then I will tell you a tale
Must be told by the moonlight alone,
In the grove at the end of the vale!
You must promise to come, for I said
I would show the night-flowers their queen.
Nay, turn not away that sweet head,
'T is the loveliest ever was seen.
- Meet me by Moonlight, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
- 'T were vain to tell thee all I feel,
Or say for thee I'd die.
Ah, well-a-day, the sweetest melody
Could never, never say, one half my love for thee.
- 'T were vain to tell, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
