The Lady's Yes

"Yes," I answered you last night;
"No," this morning, Sir, I say.
Colours seen by candlelight,
Will not look the same by day.

When the viols played their best,
Lamps above, and laughs below
Love me sounded like a jest,
Fit for Yes or fit for No.

Call me false, or call me free
Vow, whatever light may shine,
No man on your face shall see
Any grief for change on mine.

Yet the sin is on us both
Time to dance is not to woo
Wooer light makes fickle troth
Scorn of me recoils on you.

Learn to win a lady's faith
Nobly, as the thing is high;
Bravely, as for life and death
With a loyal gravity.

Lead her from the festive boards,
Point her to the starry skies,
Guard her, by your truthful words,
Pure from courtship's flatteries.

By your truth she shall be true
Ever true, as wives of yore
And her Yes, once said to you,
Shall be Yes for evermore.

I hope you liked it!

A few favorite quotes on love

Love is when two people who care
for each other get confused.
--Bob Schneider

Love is much nicer to be in than an automobile
accident, a tight girdle, a higher tax bracket or
a holding pattern over Philadelphia.
--Judith Viorst

Getting along with men isn't what is important.
The vital knowledge is how to get along with a man,
one man.
--Phyllis McGinley
