A Jongleur Strayed by Richard Le Gallienne

The word "beloved" appears in this book several times, in various upper and lower case combinations. Whatever the combination, in some cases, the second E in "beloved" is e-accent (e) and sometimes it is e-grave (e). Since I had no way of telling if this was what the author intended, or a typesetting error, or some other reason, I have left each exactly as it appears in the original book.

TO

THE LOVE

OF

ANDRE AND GWEN

_If after times Should pay the least attention to these rhymes, I bid them learn 'Tis not my own heart here That doth so often seem to break and burn-- O no such thing!-- Nor is it my own dear Always I sing: But, as a scrivener in the market-place, I sit and write for lovers, him or her, Making a song to match each lover's case-- A trifling gift sometimes the gods confer!_

(After STRATO)
