<poem> No fire, no hot ember so ardently glows As love loved in secret when nobody knows,

         When nobody knows.

No rose, no carnation can seem half so sweet As two loving souls when together they meet,

         When together they meet.

Let thine heart be a mirror, reflected therein Thou canst see how devoted, how true mine hath been,

         How true mine hath been.
