Lord of my love, by your merit do you ensure my loyalty;
I send you this written message anonymously; to prove only my devotion and not my education —
my devotion so vast that any skill compared to it is laid open and meaningless. Because I cannot find the words to express my adoration, I keep the hope that some imaginative inspiration rises from deep in your heart to bestow some meaning on my bared love —-
And, only when whatever star that guides my actions; looking upon me with a benign and gracious blessing will deign to dress my ragged love in worthy raiment
will I be made deserving of you attentions and mention, only then will I dare to proclaim my love for you straightforward.
And, until then I dare not reveal myself so plain that you put my love to your test
