Editor’s Notev

  • 1         Love took his bow and arrow,
  • 2         And slew his mother's sparrow.
  • 3         I know not how it chanced,
  • 4         Perhaps his arrow glanced.
  • 5         Away the wag him hied,
  • 6         And then his mother cried:
  • 7         Lord! how am I a-paid!
  • 8My bird is dead, and now my boy is strayed!
