Song Of Fortunio


If you suppose I'm going to say
Whose love I dare,
I would not for an empire's sway
Her name declare.

Nay, sing we turn about this air
If you think meet,
That I adore her --- she is fair
As is the wheat.

I to her whim where-er it leads,
Or bids, defer,
And I can if my life she needs
Give that to her.

The anguish which a love untold
Makes us endure,
My heart has torn, mt heart will hold
Till death, I'm sure.

But I too fondly love to say
Whose love I dare;
I's for my darling die --- not aye
Her name declare.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
