  • Meet me by moonlight alone,
    And then I will tell you a tale
    Must be told by the moonlight alone,
    In the grove at the end of the vale!
    You must promise to come, for I said
    I would show the night-flowers their queen.
    Nay, turn not away that sweet head,
    'T is the loveliest ever was seen.
    • Meet me by Moonlight, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
  • 'T were vain to tell thee all I feel,
    Or say for thee I'd die.
    Ah, well-a-day, the sweetest melody
    Could never, never say, one half my love for thee.
    • 'T were vain to tell, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
