My Sweetheart when a Boy

Tho' many gentle hearts I've known,
And many a pretty face;
Were love sat gayly on his throne,
In beauty and in grace;
Yet never was my heart enthrall'd
With such enchanted joy
. Is by the darling whom I call'd
My sweetheart when a boy,
My sweetheart when a boy.

I hung upon her lightest word.
My very joys were fears,
And flutterd timid as a bird
When sunshine first appears.
I never thought my heart could rove.
Life then had no alloy,
With such a truth I seem'd to love
My sweetheart when a boy,
My sweetheart when a boy.

And yet the dream has pass'd away,
Tho' like it lived it pass'd;
Each moment was too bright to stay,
But sparkled to the last.
There, on my heart, the beams remain
In gay, unclouded joy,
when I remember her again,
My sweetheart when a boy,
My sweetheart When a boy.
