1423. Valse Jeune
 
By Louise Imogen Guiney
 
 
ARE favoring ladies above thee?
  Are there dowries and lands? Do they say
Seven others are fair? But I love thee:
          Aultre n’auray!
 
All the sea is a lawn in our country;        5
  All the morrow, our star of delay.
I am King: let me live on thy bounty!
          Aulture n’auray!
 
To the fingers so light and so rosy
  That have pinioned my heart,(welladay!)        10
Be a kiss, be a ring with this posy:
          Aultre n’auray!
