I wrote for you all night long
An amorous billet-doux
Unveiling my maiden heart
To protest my love for you.
Mon amour, muse, god too
Yes you, who I worship like a mad priest…
Roses have lost their colour
Larks, their voice incarnate a beast
Days no longer are cheerful
My world, sans you, is deceased.
Oh love, azure eyed love, alack
Your blue is icy and frozen
Voice, a blazing trail of lust
Turning hearts to ashes and dust.
Adieu, adieu, I fear, so adieu…
To survive your frost and your flame
I wrote for you a billet-doux last night
And tore to bits upon the dawn of light.
