Flown, she of painted wings, long flown
Forlorn, I think of other things, have known
Tears, shed for her memory, who never knew!
Tears, shed by fools like me, who failed to do
Speak, of love secret held in heart, undeclared
Seek, today and forever apart, compared
She: flown and her flight for her found: settled
Me, stayed but in staying never found, nettled
Fear, why do you rule a man, speak
Sincere, to get her if you can, seek
Brave, it is what a man has to be, or you
Slave, shall as I be, left to rue.
