QuotesEdit

  • Tying her bonnet under her chin,
    She tied her raven ringlets in;
    But not alone in the silken snare
    Did she catch her lovely floating hair,
    For, tying her bonnet under her chin,
    She tied a young man’s heart within.

    Their long, bright tresses, one by one,
    As they laughed and talked in the chamber there,
    After the revel was done.
