Woman, thou shalt be the death of me!
Men and wild beasts have tried
to conquer my indomitable spirit.
I sent them on their way, laughing.
Even Mother Nature did her utmost,
with gales and sleet and snow and such
and failed to bring me to my knees.
But THOU , woman, I can not fight!
I am like a child before thee,
putty in thy tender, slender hands.
For heaven´s sake show mercy
and tread gently, because
for thy love I would die.
