The Mask

 'Put off that mask of burning gold
With emerald eyes.
' 'O no, my dear, you make so bold To find if hearts be wild and wise, And yet not cold.
' 'I would but find what's there to find, Love or deceit.
' 'It was the mask engaged your mind, And after set your heart to beat, Not what's behind.
' 'But lest you are my enemy, I must enquire.
' 'O no, my dear, let all that be; What matter, so there is but fire In you, in me?'
