Vols. IX–XI: Literature of the Republic, Part IV., 1861–1889
 
A Ditty
By Gilbert Peter Knapp (b. 1855)
 
[Born in New York, N. Y., 1855.]

TIME hath some secrets he will ne’er disclose,
  Strive as we will, we may not all discover;
True to herself, sweet-fashioned as a rose,
  Jenny doth live, and yet she hath no lover!
 
Jenny doth live! ye hearts of slighted worth,        5
  Grieve not though fame with brightest wing doth hover
O’er spirits portionless! Fair as her birth,
  Jenny doth live, and yet she hath no lover.
