It may be …

It may be that I do require someone to cherish,
someone in whom I may find inspiration and mature.
However, she is no mere substitute for
her, though indeed my loss has shown her dearer.
These new emotions may be less aesthetic, but they are no
less real for that.
          full fealty is lost, but still I offer tribute:
now to a deeper woman.

          treat me then gently, perilous in your dark beauty:
that which Eleanor inspired you may command.
          and would I lose my heart, I gave it gladly.
