For the Spring has scattered into flightThe Vows of Lent, and bids the heart be light.Bring on the Roast, and take the Fish away!The Season calls--and Woman's eyes are bright!BEFORE the phantom of Pale Winter died,Methought the Voice of Spring within me cried,"When Hymen's rose-decked altars glow within,Why nods the laggard _Bachelor_ outside?"AND, at the Signal, I who stood beforeIn idle musing, shouted, "Say no more!You know how little while we have to Love--And Love's light Hand is knocking at the door!"NOW, the New Moon reviving old desires,The gallant Youth to Sentiment aspires;And ere he saunters forth on conquest bent,Himself, like unto Solomon, attires.[Illustration: HIS WINTER GARMENTS HUNG--WHERE, NO ONE KNOWS!]HOW blithely through the smiling throng he goes,His Winter garments hung--where, no one knows!A Symphony in radiant scarfs and hose,Wrought t'inspire a maiden's "Ah's!" and "Oh's!"
