Each tripping maid with bghlsome tread.
In dainty shoes, most high of heel,
With eyes that laugh and up -tossed head,
Glides through the old Virginia reel.
The gleam of mellow candle light
Wcavi8 golden meshes of romance,
And Cupid speeds his arrow's flight
Amid the mazes of the dance,
Just ns in past colonial years.
When, lo the music's frolic peal,
The happy maids and cavaliers
Ihuieed in the old Virgiuia reel.
