SONGS FROM THE TURRET
X.

My ladye's eyes are wishing wells,
   Wherein I gaze with silent yearning;
Deep in their depths my future dwells.
My ladye's eyes are wishing wells,
But not one sign my fate foretells,
   While my poor heart with love is burning.
My ladye's eyes are wishing wells,
   Wherein I gaze with silent yearning.

Three Women. By Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
Chicago ; New York : W.B. Conkey Company, 1897.
