ON THE DEATH OF MY WIFE


Now you are gone
and your lovely face has faded
what shall I do with your rosy cheeks
which live in my heart, but jaded.

What shall I do with your deep dark eyes
in which I drowned one day,
and your beauteous ebon hair 
where moonbeams used to play.

Now you are gone
and I am in this field standing by a lonely sycamore
I’ll think of you, and you will come to me
my one true love, ma chérie d'amour.
