Say, Yes or No, why, thou! say’st not yes or no
from my heavy heart grief to go,
to decide, what thee took so long?
Why! What! In my woe’s way, was I wrong,
to I thee win, me to myself loose,
from rainbow’s colors is it clearest to choose?
Or as hard sitting on shore n plane sip from seas bottom pick,
or the worlds entire poison would thee tongue lick?
Why, thee on foreign sources do reside.
You too have reason, on thee own to decide,
knowst not for thee stature apt I am!
For thy heart not god but I came.
