Sorcery

What is this shock of sweet delight
That puts all sober thought to flight
On hearing someone speak your name?
This little candle in my heart
That glows and burns, and warms each part
Of day and night? This friendly thing
That stirs in me till I must sing
Your look and voice—the enchanting way
You pin a flower on my day!
