TALES OF THE HALL, VOL. II. NOW were her nerves disordered : she was weak, And must the help of a physician seek; A Scotch physician. who had just began To settle near us, quite a graceful man, And very clever, with a soft address, That would his meaning tenderly express. 37 Sick as my mother seemed, when he enquired If she was ill, he found her well attired; She purchased wares so showy and so fine, The venders all believed th' indulgence mine. But I, who thrice was woo'd, had lovers three, Must now again a very infant be, While the good lady, twenty years a wife, Was to decide the colour of his life: And she decided. She was wont t'appear To these unequal marriages severe: D AYLIND Her thoughts of such with energy she told, And was repulsive, dignified, and cold; But now, like monarchs weary of a thione, B9 She would no longer reign, at least alone She gave her pulse, and, with a manner sweet, Wished him to feel how kindly they could beat: S And 'tis a thing quite wonderful to tell 43/39 How soon he understood them, and how well. 319 9999
