Two Songs from the Sanskrit
I. Apprehension
By Douglas Ainslie (b. 1838)
 
BEFORE that my loved one
  Has come within sight,
Run quickly and tell him:
  ‘She ’s angry to-night,
Your darling’—run quickly,        5
  For ah! if I see
That ill-behaved dear one,
  I know how ’twill be:
My face will grow smiling,
  Though struggling with tears—        10
He is so beguiling,
  That dearest of dears.
