The rose did caper on her cheek,

Her bodice rose and fell,

Her pretty speech, like drunken men,

Did stagger pitiful.

Her fingers fumbled at her work, -

Her needle would not go;

What ailed so smart a little maid

It puzzled me to know,

Till

opposite I spied a cheek

That bore another rose;

Just opposite, another speech

That like the drunkard goes;

A vest that, like the bodice, danced

To the immortal tune, -

Till those two troubled little clocks

Ticked softly into one.
