YOU LOOKED SO TEMPTING         17
The deep grass moved and whispered And bowed and brushed my face.
It whispered in the sunshine : " The winter comes apace."
OU LOOKED SO TEMPTING IN THE PEW
You looked so tempting in the pew,
You looked so sly and calmó My trembling fingers played with yours
As both looked out the Psalm.
Your heart beat hard against my arm,
My foot to yours was set, Your loosened ringlet burned my cheek
Whenever they two met.
O little, little we hearkened, dear,
And little, little cared, Although the parson sermonised,
The congregation stared.
