So shall the singer serve the song;
The speaker, the sense; the self, the soul.
Praised be the part that serves the whole,
And the lover, the love that is loyal and long!
To serve is a gift that not all enjoy,
Recounting with relish the lust one might lose,
Imagining pleasures one would not refuse,
Craving a grace that would one's grace destroy,
Knowing a truth one is too vain to choose.
