Ralph (impetuously)

But I will stay for ever here, I swear, —


Nay, do not swear, you would but break the vow
As many another has.  Our tropic sun
Affects men like a fever; when ’tis run,
Then their delusions pass.  Oh leave me now;
I hear the whistle of your ship,—­adieu! 
Alohoa oie—­may God be with you.

[Enter Ethel hurriedly]

Come, Ralph, your mother and your sister wait
Quite frantic at the pier, lest you be late. 
They sent me for you.

[Exit Ralph with Ethel; he looks back and flings girl a wreath.  Girl smiles and sings Hawaiian song, picks up the wreath and drops face in her hands as Curtain goes down.]


{1} Written to be read at Luncheon, given by my Publishers to the London and Provincial Booksellers, April 12, 1910.
