The Suppliant

How long must one wait
Once a smile's thrown his way,
Let high hopes abate
So the mind has its say?
Passion's reflected!
Despite some lame efforts
The will's subjected
To all that love asserts.
As long as the head,
Supervising a heart,
Declines it be fed,
A frail horse trails the cart.
