Love in the right way. Love her, watching her
that she loves more than you, loves you as well.
Let fools compare sweet jealousy to hell.
A perfect love, though hard, will still prefer

her happiness to yours, find yours in theirs.
And do not be pretentious – their love's hot
to watch, and makes her kind to you. It's not
some saintly and unselfish love, compares

its options, is pragmatic. Slowly, weigh
your chances, your desires, and what is right.
Then kiss them both, and wish them a good night.
This love for theirs will last more than a day

and be loved back. And if this is a sin
it's one you share with Strauss's Marschallin...
