Did Not

 'Twas a new feeling - something more
Than we had dared to own before,
Which then we hid not;
We saw it in each other's eye,
And wished, in every half-breathed sigh,
To speak, but did not.
She felt my lips' impassioned touch - 'Twas the first time I dared so much, And yet she chid not; But whispered o'er my burning brow, 'Oh, do you doubt I love you now?' Sweet soul! I did not.
Warmly I felt her bosom thrill, I pressed it closer, closer still, Though gently bid not; Till - oh! the world hath seldom heard Of lovers, who so nearly erred, And yet, who did not.
