If I could shut the gate …

If I could shut the gate ...

“If I could shut the gate against my thoughts,
And keep out sorrow from this room within,
Or memory could cancel all the notes
Of my misdeeds, and I unthink my sin,
How free, how clear, how clean my soul should lie,
Discharged of such a loathsome company.”

(Anonymus in If I could shut the gate …)
Liège-Chartreuse (B)
