134. The Petition
 
OH, tell me less or tell me more, 
Soft eyes with mystery at the core, 
That always seem to meet my own 
Frankly as pansies fully grown, 
Yet waver still 'tween no and yes!         5
  
So swift to cavil and deny, 
Then parley with concessions shy, 
Dear eyes, that make their youth be mine 
And through my inmost shadows shine, 
Oh, tell me more or tell me less!  10
