Poem: Or we shall diminish

Or we shall diminish

Come nigh to me, my lord
While darkness does enfold
and hide our acts from prying eyes.
Nought shall know who thou art
my precious love.

Guard me openly, gallant man
With all love and caring in thee
when daylight shines on kin and king.
Forsake not your knightly vows
nor friendships dear.

But at night, I pray thee
Whilst none know and are harmed
let my gardens soothe thee.
Our love cannot be ignored
or we shall diminish.



Lady Prudence the Curious
