  TO PHOEBE  

"Gentle, modest little flower,
    Sweet epitome of May,
Love me but for half an hour,
    Love me, love me, little fay."
Sentences so fiercely flaming
    In your tiny, shell-like ear,
I should always be exclaiming
    If I loved you, Phoebe dear.

"Smiles that thrill from any distance
    Shed upon me while I sing!
Please ecstaticize existence,
    Love me, oh, thou fairy thing!"
Words like these, outpouring sadly,
    You'd perpetually hear,
If I loved you fondly, madly;--
    But I do not, Phoebe dear.

                             W. S. Gilbert.
