A MAN TO A WOMAN, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: Though you complain of me
Last Line: In your identity.
Subject(s): Fame; Man-woman Relationships; Reputation; Male-female Relations

Though you complain of me
That I build no marvel to your name;
That I have never grappled time to proclaim
You everlastingly;

Though no marble, however white it be,
Compels me to win your fame:
My soul is shapen as by a flame
In your identity.
