I’ve hidden my heart in the #carrel, my dear

In the ink-spattered pages of yore

In yellows and greys, t’was the sum of my days

Hunting truths from the history lores

So I’ll give you my head, and my soul, and my love

But don’t ask me for anything more

For I’ve hidden my heart in the carrel, my dear

And forgotten the key to that door
