Sweethearts For a Day

Come sing a song of memory -
That time we sat beneath a tree
And you asked, "will you marry me?"
So I replied, all properly,
"You'll have to wait and see."

I gifted you my ten-cent ring,
And you gave me a rusty spring.
And then you pushed me in the swing
We'd made with boards and bits of string.
It was the grandest thing!

We wandered happily all day -
Our clothing daubed with wet and clay -
We set our active minds astray
And drifted far and far away
To a joyful land of play.

The brilliant noon-time slowly passed
To evening shadows creeping fast.
We joined our hands, went home at last,
Forgetting quite, in joys amassed,
The question you had asked.
