Why Must I Dwell


On her defects
Sad victim of
Her shared neglect;

The unconscious joy
That she know
Leaves me en-mailed
Defensive pos;

It’s bad enough
To live on guard
But must I muse
On her regard?

Why must I dwell
On her defects,
Sad victim of
Her auto wreck?

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
