SIR HENRY TAYLOR

1800-1886

665                                           Elenas Song

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 waggst, but I am worn with strife,
 And feel like flowers that fade.
