THE LOVE SONNETS OF PROTEUS: 45. FAREWELL TO JULIET (7), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Do you remember how I laughed at you
Last Line: Entered our hearts that instant like a sword.


Do you remember how I laughed at you
In the Beaulieu woods, and how I made my peace?
It was your thirtieth birthday, and you threw
Stones like a school-girl at the chestnut trees.
The heavens were light above us and the breeze.
Your Corydon and all the merry crew
Had wandered to a distance, busier bees
Than we, who cared not where the hazels grew.
We were alone at last. I had been teasing
You with the burden of years left behind.
You were too fair to find my wit displeasing,
And I too tender to be less than kind.
Your pebbles struck me. "Wretch," I cried. The word
Entered our hearts that instant like a sword.
