Lobelia to Bag End

1. Lobelia to Bag End

Alas, my love, why must we sundered be?
You know I love you better than does he.
I thought to make you mine, long years ago
When he had gone; you were abandoned, so!
Though he returned, and you were claimed anew,
I knew you’d yet be mine, if I held true.

But now another comes to take his place
And I am torn once more from your embrace
Before you can be won. Yet I will bide:
He too will leave, it cannot be denied.

If once I win what should be mine by right,
What long I have desired, my heart’s delight
I swear that we should never part again
Though it should cost me sorrow and great pain.
