Though my carriage be but careless
Though my carriage be but careless,
though my looks be of the sternest,
yet my passions be compareless,
when I love, I love in earnest.

but a gentle soul may yoke me,
nor my heart so hard compiled
but it melts, if love provoke me.
Notes about what "text verified" means can be found here.
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary
for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees,
the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03%
of our visitors.
