No. 13: TRIO (Hilarion, Cyril & Florian)
"I am a maiden, cold and stately"


Hilarion.
I am a maiden, cold and stately,
Heartless I, with a face divine.
What do I want with a heart, innately?
Ev'ry heart I meet is mine!
Ev'ry heart I meet is mine, is mine!

All.

Haughty, humble, coy, or free,
Little care I what maid may be.
So that a maid is fair to see,
Ev'ry maid is the maid for me!

Dance.


Cyril.
I am a maiden, frank and simple,
Brimming with joyous roguery;
Merriment lurks in ev'ry dimple
Nobody breaks more hearts than I!
Nobody breaks more hearts, more hearts than I!

All.

Haughty, humble, coy, or free,
Little care I what maid may be.
So that a maid is fair to see,
Ev'ry maid is the maid for me!

Dance.


Florian.
I am a maiden coyly blushing,
Timid am I as a startled hind;
Ev'ry suitor sets me flushing,
Ev'ry suitor sets me flushing:
I am the maid that wins mankind!

All.
Haughty, humble, coy, or free,
Little care I what maid may be.
So that a maid is fair to see,
Ev'ry maid is the maid for me!
Haughty, humble, coy, or free,
Little care I what maid may be.
So that a maid is fair to see,
Ev'ry maid is the maid for me!
