The insolvent debtor

Autor : George Cosbuc - Eng

Home walked she from the mill
Her sack was down and she
Could not lift it again.
„May I help?” „What?” „For pay!”
And in the narrow lane
Good girls shouldn’t wave away
Such offers and say „nay”.
That she agreed was plain.

With her sack on my back
I start, but half-way, feeling slack,
I want my pay – three kisses.
She stops – just like her, see?
Obstructs the way and thinks
And tells no end of things,
Too much, she can’t agree:
Out of the question – three!

On two she does agree,
So, she pays half the fee;
The rest is due tonight
(Our meeting she can’t miss),
Though she’ll forget I judge!
So here I am, poor drudge,
To bear her sack and trudge –
All this for just one kiss!
