Sorry For Praising Your Beauty Just Once


If I had a thousand hearts,
All made of easily shatterable glass,
Each day I would give you one,
And as expected you would break that in return,
But still I would not stop,
At least for a thousand days in your eyes I would get to see that love,
That love,
Of hatred for me and my actions,
Still I ask forgivness for my poor situation,
For having only one heart in my chests,
That too of splashable blood and weak flesh,
Even though one day I gave it to you,
But your lips poisoned it by those words that flew,
So at last forgive me for dying so early in haste,
I could praise your beauty just once and not thousand days...

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
