Love's in Town

by John Vance Cheney

John Vance Cheney

Color in the lilacs,

And singing in the air;

Sweet is for the having,

Plenty and to spare.

Fuzzy are the bushes,

The fields are all a-smile;

Phyllis has a feeling

Life is well worth while;

Dian tests her dimples,

Griselda fetches sighs;

Amaryllis loosens

The lightnings in her eyes;

Roxy knots her ribbons,

Belinda binds her zone; —

Pluck your heart up, Colin!

Philander, hold your own!

Tell it up and down,

Love 's in town!
