1462. If I but Knew
 
By Amy E. Leigh
 
 
IF I but knew what the tree-tops say,
  Whispering secrets night and day,
I ’d make a song, my love, for you,
  If I but knew—if I but knew.
 
If I but knew how the lilies brew        5
  Nectar rare from a drop of dew,
A crystal glass I ’d fill for you,
  If I but knew—if I but knew.
 
Love, if I knew but one tender word,
  Sweet as the note of a wooing bird,        10
I ’d tell my ardent love to you,
  If I but knew—if I but knew.
