Elena's Song - Poem by Sir Henry Taylor

QUOTH tongue of neither maid nor wife
   To heart of neither wife nor maid--
Lead we not here a jolly life
   Betwixt the shine and shade?

Quoth heart of neither maid nor wife
   To tongue of neither wife nor maid--
Thou wagg'st, but I am worn with strife,
   And feel like flowers that fade.
