ASOLANDO: WHITE WITCHCRAFT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: If you and I could change to beasts, what beast should
Last Line: "but see his eyes that follow mine -- love lasts there, anyhow."
Subject(s): Animals


IF you and I could change to beasts, what beast should either be?
Shall you and I play Jove for once? Turn fox then, I decree!
Shy wild sweet stealer of the grapes! Now do your worst on me!

And thus you think to spite your friend -- turned
loathsome? What, a toad?
So, all men shrink and shun me! Dear men, pursue your road!
Leave but my crevice in the stone, a reptile's fit abode!

Now say your worst, Canidia! "He's loathsome, I allow:
There may or may not lurk a pearl beneath his puckered brow:
But see his eyes that follow mine -- love lasts there, anyhow."
