By Lady Jira

If one has not known love before

How does one recognize this lore

For when I look into his eyes

To him my heart and soul does cry

Though my lips would remain mute

For fear my thoughts would be rebuked

"Is this true love?" My question be

Or has Eros cruelly toyed with me?

And does my subject feel the same

Or do I suffer thus in vain

Trapped in fear and uncertainty

Does he feel this way of me?
