'Tis Sunrise-Little Maid-Hast Thou
No Station in the Day?
'Twas not thy wont, to hinder so-
Retrieve thine industry-

'Tis Noon-My little Maid-
Alas-and art thou sleeping yet?
The Lily-waiting to be Wed-
The Bee-Hast thou forgot?

My little Maid-'Tis Night-Alas
That Night should be to thee
Instead of Morning-Had'st thou broached
Thy little Plan to Die-
Dissuade thee, if I could not, Sweet,
I might have aided-thee-
