I, THE man with the red scarf,
   Will give thee what I have, this last week's earn-
Take them, and buy thee a silver ring
   And wed me, to ease my yearnings.
For the rest, when thou art wedded
   I'll wet my brow for thee
With sweat, I'll enter a house for thy sake,
   Thou shalt shut doors on me.
