Act II, Scene III




To Christian, no word he breathed
that would deepen dying despair,
but chose his friend, easily enwreathed
enchanting words beneath her stair
and wooed Roxane to Christian's side,
enhanced the moonlight's softest touch,
rehearsed sweet words whose passions hide
within the soul that loved too much.


--Cyrano
