26 more: Twenty lovesick maidens we • Still brooding on their mad infatuation • I cannot tell what this love may be • The soldiers of our Queen — If you want a receipt for that popular mystery • In doleful train, two and two we walk • When I first put this uniform on • Am I alone and unobserved? • Long years ago, fourteen maybe • Prithee, pretty maiden • Let the merry cymbals sound • Now tell us, we pray you, why thus they array you • Your maiden hearts, ah, do not steel to pity's eloquent appeal • Come, walk up, and purchase with avidity • True love must single-hearted be • I hear the soft note of the echoing voice of an old, old love long dead • On such eyes as maidens cherish • Sad is that woman's lot • Turn, oh turn, in this direction • A magnet hung in a hardware shop • Love is a plaintive song • So go to him and say to him, with compliment ironical • It's clear that mediaeval art alone retains its zest • If Saphir I choose to marry • When I go out of door • I'm a Waterloo House young man • After much debate internal
