I Wish I Could Loosen

I wish I could loosen

The wimple life has placed

So tightly round your heart.

That these too old tired hands

Could fiercely fight the foe

Who hastens your retreat,

That amid your exit

Your eyes could somehow see

That I in age do stand

And feebly cry that I

Do love as none before.
