by Alfred Tennyson, Lord (1809 - 1892)

Two little hands that meet
Language: English 
Two little hands that meet,
Claspt on her seal, my sweet!
Must I take you and break you,
Two little hands that meet?

I must take you,
And break you,
And loving hands must part;

Take, take;
Break, break;

Break, you may break my heart!

Faint heart never won,
Break, break and all's done.
