3. A Poor French Sailor’s Scottish Sweetheart 1/1/2004
4. Mimnermus in Church 1/3/2003


Somewhere beneath the sun,
These quivering heart-strings prove it,
Somewhere there must be one
Made for this soul, to move it;
Some one that hides her sweetness
From neighbours whom she slights,
Nor can attain completeness,
Nor give her heart its rights;
Some one whom I could court

[Hata Bildir]
