MORTALITY, by            
First Line: How could you believe that I
Last Line: Tell me, how? -- god knows I do.
Subject(s): Mortality

How could you believe that I
Could adore so cold a creature,
One who bears mortality
Written large on every feature?

How could one of my demeanor
Come to love a thing like you,
Just a spectre, paler, leaner?
Tell me, how? -- God knows I do.
