The inevitable disaster, When first we met ? we did not guess
That Love would prove so hard a master.

And it turned out a Sonnet, It began a la mode, I intended an Ode ; But Rose crossed the road
In her latest new bonnet. I intended an Ode,
And it turned out a Sonnet.

And he said true. Under the sun
There's nothing new.

Come out, sweetheart, and bless the sun' The birds are glad, and so are we.
