Just that which in all courtesy a married man may proffer,
And naught but civil dance--no more--did I request or offer!
But thy remarking on my feather, (one I'd no idea 'twas there)
Did make a mystery I thought to probe with subtle care.
To find if double meaning thou intended there or no,
And finding none I stand prepared to let the matter go!
