Who spread a heaven beneath the sun,"
   I said to Love.

   I said to him,
"We now know more of thee than then;
We were but weak in judgment when,
   With hearts abrim,
We clamoured thee that thou would'st please

Tess's Lament

Would it were time to say farewell,
To claim my nook, to need my knell,
Time for them all to stand and tell

[Hata Bildir]
