Thou hast bewitched me, beloved
English source: Marguerite Radclyffe Hall

Thou hast bewitched me, belovèd,
Till I am weaker than water,
Water that drips from the fountain,
Through thy white tapering fingers.

Yet as the waters together
Gather and grow to a torrent,
Gathers the flood of my passion,
Bearing thee forth on its bosom!
