Beautiful Women



Love took chambers on our street
Opposite to mine;
On his door, he tacked a neat,
Lettered sign.

Straightway grew his custom great,
For his sign read so:
β€œHearts united while you wait.
Step in. Love and Co.”

Much I wondered who was β€œCo.”
In Love’s partnership;
Thought across the street I’d goβ€”
Learn from Love’s lip.

So I went; and since that day
Life is hard for me.
I was buncoed! (By the way,
β€œCo.” is Jealousy.)
