BITTERNESS

 

Snow lie deep, but never so deep
      As drift the snows on me.
Hurt heart break, but never so break
      As break and bury me.
Breath be bitter, but never again
      So fierce as spent on me.
Thought be bitter and words taste bitter
      As salt on the tongue at sea,
But never so bitter a flower as she –
          Take from me.
