Love By Proxy


Distant maiden of my youth I love you ever still
serving now by proxy while assisting proxies will
loving her my lady fair who’s surrogates renew
all the former glory that my lady did eschew
holy now in retrospect and like a Saint is she
scorning all those detriments a lady could foresee
loving now all others through the lens of her complaint
like some valiant hero in those pains of that restraint
traveling a pilgrimage recalling love so pure
bright as heavens glories now this love she did abjure
fasting like a beggar then while feasting upon that
memory of my lady and her friendship that I lack

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
