La Baroque

Or the Queen of Baroque

She was a maiden

of good honour 

but never amused


Always stayed

in her doomed manor 

with nothing to do


-Lulli lullay-

sang the maiden

to her flowered vase


Languished lament 

fading

from her bowel away


She was a maiden 

of good manners

but never aloof


Always prayed 

for her amor

to come back well soon


-Lulli lullay-

 kept singing the maiden

to her unbloomed faith


Languished lament 

vanishing

to her unheard fate

.

Queen of Baroque

This

how we call her


drenched 

in her doom 

so unfair


danced

'til her feet

could not bare


blessed

for in her life

she despaired

.
