Forever mine

Even though your name be tarnished and mocked,
And your stay a subject of toils to see
I shall not forget those true paths we walked,
Nor shall my immortal love cease to be,
I shall not waver from the covenant
Nor shall I lead myself to the gallows,
I may never forget the wrongs of old,
But my love will forever beam as gold.


Broken vows

How gallant would I be a knight
If my love and care were curtailed,
And how true a vanguard of light
Were I had you none but impaled,
Should I watch in that loneliness
Then at the height of its blossom
And stare that altered loveliness,
And weep for that which I’ve become!
