The axe of lust can break the door of chastity
which is bolted with the bolt of modesty.
Even at midnight is my mind worried by lust,
and this one thing, alas! is without mercy.
I would conceal my lust, but alas,
it yields not to my will but breaks out like a sneeze.
I say I would be firm, but alas,
my malady breaks out from its concealment and appears in public.
The dignity that would not go after an absent lover
is not known to those who are sticken by love.
The sorrow I have endured by desiring to go
after my absent lover, in what way is it excellent?
I know nothing like shame when my beloved does from love (just)
what is desired (by me).
Are not the enticing words of my trick-abounding roguish
lover the weapon that breaks away my feminine firmness?
I said I would feign dislike and so went (away);
(but) I embraced him the moment I say my mind began to unite with him!
Is it possible for those whose hearts melt
like fat in the fire to say they can feign a strong dislike and remain so?
