Song for Two Voices

Follow and faint not, if the road be long
   The pathway desolate, 
No day so sad but reacheth even song
   Be still and wait
Through good reports and ill, through joy and sorrow
Surely thy Lady comes to thee tomorrow— 

I followed tho' the day was long indeed
   The pathway desolate,
Night came not to me in my dire need
   Where lost, I sate.
Through good report and ill, through joy and sorrow
I waited, but there came not any morrow
   Surely, who waits on woman waits on sorrow ....
