O love is a jade of a wayward life;
Sometimes she is gone at the whiff of a breath;
Again she survives the most savage strife;
Then often she scoffs in the face of death.

Sometimes she will fight at the drop of the hat;
And then she will take your cuffs and blows
As tame as a household tabby-cat,
And likes to be led by a string in her nose.

Sometimes at the turn of hand, she is dead;
Again at your tears she will laughingly flout.
She's enough to drive a man out of his head;
As for me, I will not have the creature about.
