Expectant of a mere acknowledgement,
When startled currents from your heart exhume
Joyful commotions plausibly thought latent
And the object of this mislaid stimulation?
Perchance now intimate of some power innate,
While presenting practised communication
To place the happy visitor in a dizzy state –
A charming individual whose still small life
Is considered more in months than ages,
A summer lad indeed and free from strife,
Ergo while still engaging, disengages.
Indeed, you might have thought you’d seen it all
Ere Sorley had you in his radiant thrall.
