C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
Toasts (To Sweetheart)
  Here’s to one; may she be won.      1
        May their joys be as deep as the ocean,
And their misfortune as light as its foam.
  May we have the unspeakable good fortune to win a true heart, and the merit to keep it.      3
        Here’s to the heart
  Though another’s it be;
Here’s to the cheeks,
  Though they bloom not for me.
        Here’s to the wings of love;
  May they never moult a feather
Until your little barque and my little barque
Sail down the stream of life together.
