Won the Pot

J. R., in “The Columbia Spectator”

THAT little hand!

I hold it firm in mine,

And scan its outlines fine.

My eyes expand,

And grow with love intense and strong;

I gaze upon it fond and long,

That little hand!

That little hand!

It is so smooth, so pure and white,

And covered o’er with diamonds quite,

In beauty grand.

Oh, how I love it! See me press

It to my lips in fond caress,

That little hand!

That little hand!

There are no others fair as you!

I lay you down, and gladly too,

With manner bland.

It was a diamond flush and straight!

Soon may I hold its charming mate!

That little hand!
