THE BLIND LOVE


The blind love
Beauty and love
Together resided
Heavenly resorts above
And were guided

By the spirits divine
Incited them to always align

Gamboled they hand in hand
Place like a fairy land

Happy like victorious prince
Jealous were the happiness thence

Love, importune for beauty
Forgetting her divine duty

Hovered over like a moth
On the lightened luminous path

Never would they go astray
Promised under the broad day

One night they were making love
The beauty saw shining moon above

The moon light was so sweet
Beauties praised it and too repeat

Love was jealous of beauty infidel
Could not bear the moon rival

Come at beauty with a hard blow
Plucked out love’s eyes glow

Since that day the love is blind
And the beauty does not mind

Love and beauty part the way
Since that day are at bay

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
