Would that I fell for you, and you for me,
Since each our other hopes are gone. So please
Let us take comfort in a loving breeze
While humour sweeps us in its irony—
And as if love were mere commodity
We’ll see in each other what we both do miss
Elsewhere, and so, with boldness such as this
Let us love then, with clear absurdity!
We’ll leave all others in our churning wake—
We’ll make ourselves the perfect rebound pair
And see elusive true love everywhere:
Thus in delusion let each fancy take
The other, and transform within the mind
All faults; so, glad we’ll be, since love is blind.
