‘Twas Love — not me –

'Twas Love -- not me --‘Twas Love — not me –
Oh punish — pray –
The Real one died for Thee –
Just Him — not me –

Such Guilt — to love Thee — most!
Doom it beyond the Rest –
Forgive it — last –
‘Twas base as Jesus — most!

Let Justice not mistake –
We Two — looked so alike –
Which was the Guilty Sake –
‘Twas Love’s — Now Strike!

Rehearsal to Ourselves

Rehearsal to OurselvesRehearsal to Ourselves
Of a Withdrawn Delight –
Affords a Bliss like Murder –
Omnipotent — Acute –

We will not drop the Dirk –
Because We love the Wound
The Dirk Commemorate — Itself
Remind Us that we died.
