Assume a face allows all
Force for fear to then evade
Embarrassed aims to recall
The choices prudence thought it paid
To beauty brought to enthrall
Any soul such magic made.
Permit loss to let life leave
The delight drawn from fair dreams
Imagined enough to heave
His devoted heart from redeemed
Belief brought to tell achieved
Sons they know how she seems.
Do dignified masks admit
The pure passion paid to tell
What truth one could commit?
Well, when want had to sell
Composure to submit,
The escaping chance fell.
May some such feeling make
The revealed rule my mind
Found followed by due fakes
Does doom weak wants to find
The heart held for your sake,
If you want some real sign.
