Love Unmet

In frangipani he was gowned

And laid in final radiant rest

The first and last, my heart’s love found

A secret passion, I attest

Well spent, the silent loyal years

Secluded in my far-off towers

For I wrote lines with ink of tears

But no regret for youth’s lost hours

There is no gift not bought with pain

Nor fealty with price unpaid

I ne’er will say I loved in vain

Just bury me ‘mid poems arrayed.
