the girl lived downstairs
the boy two floors above
through me exchanged letters
of immature hearts in love.
can we meet love for a minute?
handed to me his secret chit
why I came down the girl only knew
his letter brought her a blushing pink hue!
quickly on that same chit
she scribbled a hand girly sweet
I would die to meet you just once
but today there hardly is a chance
papa hasn't gone to office
through this letter I send you my kiss.
I, love's tender messenger
went up with her love letter
as he read it heaved a deep sigh
at home, goddamned, why?
slip out when he sleeps at three
we meet under the mahogany tree
please love do this much for me
I beg you some minutes only.
thus rhymed two hearts' dancing beat
the boy was too young to fathom it
nothing though he could understand
yet faithfully he ran their errand!
