Rhyme Scheme: AA BB CC DD EE FF GG HH EE

Will you conquer my heart with your beauty my sould going out from afarA
Shall I fall to your hand as a victim of crafty and cautions shikarA
-
Have I met you and passed you already unknowing unthinking and blindB
Shall I meet you next session at Simla O sweetest and best of your kindB
-
Does the P and O bear you to meward or clad in short frocks in the WestC
Are you growing the charms that shall capture and torture the heart in my breastC
-
Will you stay in the Plains till September my passion as warm as the dayD
Will you bring me to book on the Mountains or where the thermantidotes playD
-
When the light of your eyes shall make pallid the mean lesser lights I pursueE
And the charm of your presence shall lure me from love of the gay thirteen twoE
-
When the peg and the pig skin shall please not when I buy me Calcutta build clothesF
When I quit the Delight of Wild Asses foreswearing the swearing of oathsF
-
As a deer to the hand of the hunter when I turn 'mid the gibes of my friendsG
When the days of my freedom are numbered and the life of the bachelor endsG
-
Ah Goddess child spinster or widow as of old on Mars Hill whey they raisedH
To the God that they knew not an altar so I a young Pagan have praisedH
-
The Goddess I know not nor worship yet if half that men tell me be trueE
You will come in the future and therefore these verses are written to youE
