Don Juan 01-179
Canto the First


They blush, and we believe them; at least I
     Have always done so; 't is of no great use,
In any case, attempting a reply,
     For then their eloquence grows quite profuse;
And when at length they 're out of breath, they sigh,
     And cast their languid eyes down, and let loose
A tear or two, and then we make it up;
And then-and then-and then-sit down and sup.

George Gordon Byron, Lord Byron (1788-1824) ByronLong
