A choking gall and a preserving sweet.

Here are fruits, flowers, leaves and branches,
And here is my heart which beats only for you.

Yet each man kills the thing he loves,
By each let this be heard,
Some do it with a bitter look
Some with a flattering word,
The coward does it with a kiss,
The brave man with a sword!
