I cannot buy it — ’tis not sold —

I cannot buy it — ’tis not sold —
There is no other in the World —
Mine was the only one

I was so happy I forgot
To shut the Door And it went out
And I am all alone —

If I could find it Anywhere
I would not mind the journey there
Though it took all my store

But just to look it in the Eye —
“Did’st thou?” “Thou did’st not mean,” to say,
Then, turn my Face away.
