A Valentine Game

(For Two Players)

They have a game, thus played:
He says unto his maid
What are those shining things
So brown, so golden brown?
And she, in doubt, replies
How now, what shining things
So brown?

But then, she coming near,
To see more clear,
He looks again, and cries
(All startled with surprise)
Sweet wretch, they are your eyes,
So brown, so brown!

The climax and the end consist
In kissing, and in being kissed.
