Pierrette Goes
By William Griffith
PIERRETTE has gone, but it was not
  Exactly that she died,
So much as vanished and forgot
  To say where she would hide.
To keep a sudden rendezvous,        5
  It came into her mind
That she was late. What could she do
  But leave distress behind?
Afraid of being in disgrace,
  And hurrying to dress,        10
She heard there was another place
  In need of loveliness.
She went so softly and so soon—
  Sh!—hardly made a stir,
But going took the stars and moon        15
  And sun away with her.
