Iíll never love again a love so fair,
Supposing that I ever love at all,
For when I lost my Love I felt despair
As deep as I felt high when in enthral
I held my Love, caressed her breasts, her hair,
Or in the breaking dawn I heard her call
My name in tender, soft, melodious voice,
Or when, in her womanhood I rejoiced.
Iíll never love a love so wonderful,
For where on Earth or Heaven would I find
A girl or angel half as beautiful
As her, in looks and character and mind?
In truth, Iíll never want to love again,
The first cut is the deepest; shall remain.
