I planted you, my love,I planted you
And how come what flowered was not what was planted/and the bearing dod not yet give birth
What was born
How come what did not wane could be weakened
And on the other hand,the trouble is.
And only into my life they husked this mix
Of how and why, the slips I saved
From your eyes.
