Poetry of Kansas

My Lady Fair

Soft as silk was her golden hair,
    Bright as stars were her eyes of blue.
Truly I loved my lady fair,
    Truly my lady loved me, too.
Did it break my heart when my love lay
Why! bless your soul! she didn't die!
Time changes wrought as it onward sped,
    She loves another,__so do I.
