ROSE'S SONG from THE VILLAGE COQUETTES 
by Charles Dickens


Some folks who have grown old and sour,

Say love does nothing but annoy.

The fact is, they have had their hour,

So envy what they can't enjoy.

I like the glance--I like the sigh--

That does of ardent passion tell!

If some folks were as young as I,

I'm sure they'd like it quite as well.


Old maiden aunts so hate the men,

So well know how wives are harried,

It makes them sad--not jealous--when

They see their poor dear nieces married.

All men are fair and false, they know,

And with deep sighs they assail 'em,

It's so long since they tried men, though,

I rather think their mem'ries fail 'em.
