this is what i vow: she shall have my heart to keep; sweetly will we stir and sleep. all the years, as now. swift the measured sands may run; love like this is never done; she and i are welded one: this is what i vow. this is what i pray:
keep her by me tenderly; keep her sweet in pride of me. ever and a day. keep me from the old distress; let me, for our happiness; be the one to love the less: this is what i pray. this is what i know: lovers’ oaths are thin as rain; love’s a harbinger of pain. would it were not so. ever is my heart a-thirst; ever is my love accurst; she is neither last nor first: this is what i vow.
