............... After The Bard ...............
............... . ...............
............... . ...............
............... As thou hast tendered rich, plush love to me, ...............
............... And transferred intèrest to mine account, ...............
............... And spent revénues so unfrugally, ...............
............... In truth, I've tallied that exact amount. ...............
............... . ...............
............... Or rather should I say I am that sum, ...............
............... For when we met my value was as naught; ...............
............... Thy palace hath displaced my paltry slum ...............
............... And golden is the change that thou hast wrought. ...............
............... . ...............
............... When this I tell thee thou respondest, "Thief, ...............
............... Thy very words are stolen from my mouth, ...............
............... For when we met my worth was told more brief ...............
............... Than lives the silver snowflake in the south." ...............
............... . ...............
............... What miracle of love is here recorded, ...............
............... That poor with poor is all in all rewarded! ...............
