Volume II. Love.  1904.
 
IV. Wooing and Winning
The Exchange
Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)
 
WE pledged our hearts, my love and I,—
  I in my arms the maiden clasping;
I could not tell the reason why,
  But, O, I trembled like an aspen!
 
Her father’s love she bade me gain;        5
  I went, and shook like any reed!
I strove to act the man,—in vain!
  We had exchanged our hearts indeed.
