Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  A Victorian Anthology, 1837–1895.  1895.
 
To La Sansœur
 
William Caldwell Roscoe (1823–59)
 
 
I KNOW not how to call you light,
  Since I myself was lighter;
Nor can you blame my changing plight
  Who were the first inviter.
 
I know not which began to range        5
  Since we were never constant;
And each when each began to change
  Was found a weak remonstrant.
 
But this I know, the God of Love
  Both shake his hand against us,        10
And scorning says we ne’er did prove
  True passion—but pretences.
