206             THE SPANISH LADY'S LOVE.
In a nunnery will I shroud me,
Far from other company : But ere my prayers have end, be sure of this, [To pray] for thee and for thy love I will not
miss.                                                                   w
" Thus farewell, most gentle captain,
And farewell my heart's content! Count not Spanish ladies wanton,
Though to thee my love was bent: Joy and true prosperity goe still with thee !" 95 " The like fall ever to thy share, most fair lady."
