Verities gown

Through graven eyes, 

peers the chivalry of love

Verities gown; to adorn your desire

Oft held, in reach of fervors fleeting glance

That discreetness; be perceived by silence

taut upon the lips and ears of many 

Though desire was not spoken, but

held within the virtue of true love 

Cleaved to, adored within

the beat of hearts passionate embrace

Veracity though; be a beast with woes

In revelation, renunciation

Now Ajar, this most closed door of courtly love

◄ The gathering of crows
