What long I to do first in quiet time now?
An early rise dost grant much choice in time.
The fact of loss of slip need not make sour
The day nor rue the hour—the Peace is mine.
‘Tis almost time for Paul to rise for day—
A time I do await with eagerness.
His love for me has long been joy and ray
Of sunshine in my life—ye know the rest.
Grateful I am for love of his, my Sweet.
Dost he know that my love for him is great?
I love with ev’ry part of heart—its beat
Dost tell me when he nears, and we have “date”!
Date long is good with Paul, my joy and peace.
May n’er this greatness love find wane nor cease.
