III" rMl \ B, ." d c r ? SATURDAY, - DEC. 14, 1805. When I Proposed. We stood on the bridge watching the river below, When I proposed. The moon kissed her cheeks with its mellow glow, W\en I proposed; Hsr eyes black ss night looked into my own. In silent suspense, we stood there slone, The stars brighest rays on her bowed head shone, When I proposed. I know thst she loved me, I forgot all the world, When I proposed, Like the song, for me, "there was on? ly one girl," When I proposed, Ths moon kissed our heads on the bridge so grim, The stars reflected in the river dim. Her sweet answer was "yes, I love you,Jim," When I proposed. There have been happy nights on the bridge o'er the ses, Sines, when I proposed, But none will e'er be happy to me, As i when I proposed, The moon still has its cold mellow fsce, And nightly, hold lovers no doubt in embrace, "No," sorrow, "yes," joy in the sam? old place, Where I proposed.
