Peace was my earliest love, and I presume 57

There is no Peace; had we again the choice 58

While London, while Berlin--two cities dear 59

Only the ruthless, now, so it would seem 60

You find "outrageous" this?--these outraged hearts?-- 61

I must not die of pity; I must live; 62

Chafe with your maiden breasts, O Shunammite 63

Where does he walk, or sit and stir his tea 64

How innocent of me and my dark pain 65
