He coaxed and feinted, tried each trlclc, Took every chance, used all his art; And swore he would throw down a queen If ho could only win her heart. He promised to give up his club, If need be, even take a spade; Ah! if she held her heart like that Twero best for her to play old maid! But, she, the cruel damsel, played, And sometimes lost, and sometimes won; 1 And yielded not her heart to him, Until he thought that she had none.
