XI

I t decks me only to mock me, this jewelled chain of mine.
    It bruises me when on my neck, it strangles me when I struggle to tear it off.
    It grips my throat, it chokes my singing.
    Could I but offer it to your hand, my Lord, I would be saved.
    Take it from me, and in exchange bind me to you with a garland, for I am ashamed to stand before you with this jewelled chain on my neck.
