Treasure Island

William Cosmo Monkhouse

(1840 - 1901 / England)

Song

WHO calls me bold because I won my love,
And did not pine,
And waste my life with secret pain, but strove
To make him mine?

I us’d no arts; ’t was Nature’s self that taught
My eye to speak,
And bid the burning blush to paint unsought
My flashing cheek;

[Hata Bildir]
