    “What guyle is this, that those her golden tresses
    She doth attyre under a net of gold,
    And with sly skill so cunningly them dresses,
    That which is gold or haire may scarse be told?
    Is it that mens frayle eyes, which gaze too bold,
    She may entangle in that golden snare;
    And, being caught, may craftily enfold
    Their weaker harts, which are not wel aware?
    Take heed therefore, myne eyes, how ye doe stare
    Henceforth too rashly on that guilefull net,
    In which if ever ye entrapped are,
    Out of her bands ye by no meanes shall get.
    Fondnesse it were for any, being free,
    To covet fetters, though they golden bee!”

    “I’ve always wanted her hair, though I’d never tell her that. Where hers is like fire, my hair is what we call river brown. Dark at the root, pale at the ends, as the color leeches from our hair with the stress of Stilts life. Most keep their hair short to hide their gray ends but I don’t. I like the reminder that even my hair knows life shouldn’t be this way.”

You will have to do, do it yourself.”

    “Those eyes, ’neath which my passionate rapture rose,
    The arms, hands, feet, the beauty that erewhile
    Could my own soul from its own self beguile,
    And in a separate world of dreams enclose,
    The hair’s bright tresses, full of golden glows,
    And the soft lightning of the angelic smile
    That changed this earth to some celestial isle,—
    Are now but dust, poor dust, that nothing knows.
    And yet I live! Myself I grieve and scorn,
    Left dark without the light I loved in vain,
    Adrift in tempest on a bark forlorn;
    Dead is the source of all my amorous strain,
    Dry is the channel of my thoughts outworn,
    And my sad harp can sound but notes of pain.”
