The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan, page 100
An I hire a truchman to tell my tale * the lovers' plaint is not told for pay:
If I put on patience, a lover's life * After loss of love will not last a day :
Naught is left me now but regret, repine * And tears flooding cheeks for ever and aye:
O thou who the babes of these eyes hast fled * Thou art homed in heart that shall never stray;
Would heaven I wot hast thou kept our pact * Long as stream shall flow, to have firmest fay?
Or hast forgotten the weeping slave * Whom groans afflict and whom griefs waylay?
Ah, when severance ends and we side by side * Couch, I'll blame thy rigours and chide thy pride!

loves her too. I have been reading her for many a year and must make stretches out between her reads as I am so tempted to go from one to another straight away. There are only two of hers that I haven't read and I am trying so hard to hold off on them.
Glad to see you are enjoying Local Girls. It was a 5 star read for me and my review is here:
