Whatever it is — she has tried it —

Whatever it is — she has tried it —
Awful Father of Love —
Is not Ours the chastising —
Do not chastise the Dove —

Not for Ourselves, petition —
Nothing is left to pray —
When a subject is finished —
Words are handed away —

Only lest she be lonely
In thy beautiful House
Give her for her Transgression
License to think of us —
