SONG, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: I was so chill, and overworn, and sad
Last Line: Forgetting weariness.
Alternate Author Name(s): Hepburn, Patrick, Mrs.
Subject(s): Desire; Love

I was so chill, and overworn, and sad,
To be a lady was the only joy I had.
I walked the street as silent as a mouse,
Buying fine clothes, and fittings for the house.

But since I saw my love
I wear a simple dress,
And happily I move
Forgetting weariness.
