Edward Rowland Sill. 1841–1887
 
209. Momentous Words
 
WHAT spiteful chance steals unawares 
  Wherever lovers come, 
And trips the nimblest brain and scares 
  The bravest feelings dumb? 
  
We had one minute at the gate,         5
  Before the others came; 
To-morrow it would be too late, 
  And whose would be the blame! 
  
I gazed at her, she glanced at me; 
  Alas! the time sped by:  10
"How warm it is to-day!" said she; 
  "It looks like rain," said I.
