Thou needst me nay


Keen crony above thou favoured me once

Therest upon the wear cold wind of mid-may

Where flowers cease to bloom its heedless chance

I glimpse a casket adorned in the hay

So bizarre, my chest pounding; cheeks grew pale

Sweet lips of poet’s whisp’rd in me ears

Delight! Ere I reached what some sought in tale

Tis’ to thee I found friend: shoulder to dry tears

To cuddle in night’s fierce coldness - a knight

Whom I drunk mirth’s of battle, sang then drift

Myself not least, honoured thee as I might

Yet through thy bear’s heart, scarce love flew and shift

Sun spares me grieve: we needst not of oneself

 for but we, bearers of the same stern might
