Quote #1

Noons of dryness see you fedBy the involuntary powers,Nights of insult let you passWatched by every human love. (37-40)


The speaker declares that he'll watch over his lover completely. He'll make sure that he's fed in times of famine, and protected from all harm. Instead of looking to God for help, the speaker essentially says, his beloved should look to him.
