LAYS OF FRANCE: SONG (2), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Would I might go far over sea
Last Line: And too fond loving of thy hair!
Alternate Author Name(s): Shaftesbury, Marie, Abbess Of
Subject(s): Beauty; Love


WOULD I might go far over sea,
My Love, or high above the air,
And come to land or heaven with thee,
Where no law is and none shall be
Against beholding the most rare
Strange beauty that thou hast for me.

Alas, for, in this bitter land,
Full many a written curse doth stand
Against the kiss thy lips should bear;
Against the sweet gift of thy hand;
Against the knowing that thou art fair,
And too fond loving of thy hair!
