III.

If only you had come before ! (This is the thing I most deplore) page: 71 A seemlier woman you had found, More calm, by courtesies more bound, Less quick to greet you, more subdued Of appetite ; of slower mood. But ah ! you come so late, so late ! This time of day I can’t pretend With slight, sweet things to satiate The hunger‐cravings. Nay, my friend, I cannot blush and turn and tremble, Wax loth as younger maidens do. Ah, Christopher, with you, with you, You would not wish me to dissemble ?
