Pardon the sinner:

Audacity of a coward,

Radiance of a gypsy,

Virtue of a thief,

Sympathy of a murderer,

Esteem of a pessimist,

Filth of a virgin,

Impurity of a truth,

Authenticity of a lie,

Respect of a vagrant,

Satisfaction of an anorexic,

Guilt of an angel,

Confidence of a hermit,

Disposition of a bastard,

Optimism of a realist,

Amiability of a widow,

Pardon the sinner:

The death of a saint.

("Shouldn't we wait here all the while,

And trust in lust's and faith's beguile?")
