pardon,if you will,
my indulgence
but matters of the heart
hold me captive.

i had said
but you insisted
and said you too

i seek to state my case thus
and trust
that within the bounds
of your heart
shall be found
a spot of pity
and understanding
of your servants grievous undoing
and spare him, though deserving,
the reprimand of your authority

it is without face
and much shame
that i should confess
of a love illegal both
in the sovereign and mortal laws
and hopelessly hang on the very
hope that within your hearts bounty
shall suffice a reason though not withstanding
circumstances of the moment
to forgive your humble servant
of the crimes am most afraid to word

i beg again
say not nay
say not for love
love shall weep
yet understanding
prevail will

it is not within my capacity
to love
she that my heart is with.
