For Sweet Love's Sake
by William Henry Gardner


For sweet love's sake,
I pray thee take,
This little knot of blue,
It only shows,
The love that glows,
Within thy heart so true.
But shouldst thou find,
Love is unkind,
Grieve not, o lovely maid,
Grieve not, grieve not,
For winds will blow,
And tears will flow,
Before love's debt is paid,
For sweet love's sake,
I pray thee take,
This little knot of blue.
