TO MY LAST DUCHESS


Dear dolly, from the
Darkest dungeon of
My heart I wrote from
Hell, and if failed to

Touch your heart, then
Nothing could ever
Appeals the goddess
Till the time when

everything now
Alive are all dust, I
Felt frightened never
to win, for death

At dawn await, s me if
I loose, I will never
Love again was once my
Sworn oath, but with you

As my last I shall rest,
I sought, and search far,
And wide for the best
Lullaby to lure your heart

To min, this I gave you,
Because of you that whilte
Teeth in the night I faced
A thousand demon when others

Will freeze, yet if I should
Fail, and fall out in this
Race to trace you, then I peak
Death, than duty, for my name

Will be written in the land
Of tale land, that here lies
Benjuzzy the poet, in his quest
For the last duchess.
