Promise This When You be DyingB
Some shall summon MeC
Mine belong Your latest SighingB
Mine to Belt Your EyeD
-
Not with Coins though they be MintedE
From an Emperor's HandF
Be my lips the only BuckleG
Your low Eyes demandF
-
Mine to stay when all have wanderedH
To devise once moreI
If the Life be too surrenderedH
Life of Mine restoreI
-
Poured like this My Whole LibationJ
Just that You should seeC
Bliss of Death Life's Bliss extol thro'I
Imitating YouK
-
Mine to guard Your Narrow PrecinctL
To seduce the SunJ
Longest on Your South to lingerI
Largest Dews of MornJ
-
To demand in Your low favorI
Lest the Jealous GrassM
Greener lean Or fonder clusterI
Round some other faceN
-
Mine to supplicate MadonnaJ
If Madonna beC
Could behold so far a CreatureI
Christ omitted MeC
-
Just to follow Your dear futureI
Ne'er so far behindO
For My HeavenJ
Had I not beenJ
Most enough deniedP
