Rapt in the fond thought that
makes me stray from other men and walk this world alone,
sometimes I have escaped myself and flown to seek the very one that I should flee;
So fair and fell I see her passing by that the soal trembles to take flight again, so many armed sighs are in her train, this lovely foe to love himself and me!
And yet, upon that high and clouded brow I seem to see a ray of pity shine, shedding some light across the grieving heart:
So I call back my soul, and when I vow at last to tell her of my hidden pain, I have so much to say I dare not start. QUIZ!!!
