Too Soon Would I Be Overthrown

Too soon would I be overthrown
My empire quickly crumble
Too light that I would rend my heart
Too easy would I stumble

Too much would I unhinge these gates
Too freely I'd let enter
Too softly look into your eyes
Too sweetly would they glitter

But sweet! Let me be cradled there
But sweet! Let me be succored
But light lead me to gaze upon
The treasures of a luckard.
