The Look

Original Text: 
Love Songs (New York: Macmillan, 1917): 7. PS 3539 .E15 L8 1917 Robarts Library
2    Robin in the fall,
3But Colin only looked at me
4    And never kissed at all.
5Strephon's kiss was lost in jest,
6    Robin's lost in play,
7But the kiss in Colin's eyes
8    Haunts me night and day.
