Besides, the life and feeling of her passion (1318)

She hoards, to spend when he is by to hear her: (1319)

When sighs and groans and tears may grace the fashion (1320)

From that suspicion which the world might bear her.
To shun this blot, she would not blot the letter (1323)

With words, till action might become them better.
