Advice M

My! Ist artful so dispatched then
that for you alone I’d fall
at first and single piercing beam
cast from thus beautiful an eye, or eyes
upon a solitary soul or not
ist all quite in the course of nature as it seems to me
that kindness ever fins a heart that’s thirsting
or is found thereby and either makes a storm of ecstasy
like in youth always, in peace, in pleasant scenery
or truly bend the knee before an angel
and if misfortune be strong: be strong
face solitude and bend the neck
and rather violate the heart than cuss the cheek
