Add to list. And so I must employ my years, Without heart or inclination To pen a single thing, I fear, That pleases me, or anyone. If any would constrain my will To write of happy things, My pen would not possess the skill, Nor my tongue the power to sing. My lips could never part, in smiling, Without a gaze that lips betrayed, Since my heart would claim denial Through the tears my cheeks displayed. I leave it to the lover, who nurses Hopes that his wound might heal, To make ballads, songs and verses, That each might his own skill reveal.

In the debate between the Lover and the Lady, the alternating octaves delineate their arguments. The body of La Belle Dame sans Mercy is composed of stanzas of alternating dialogue between a male lover and the lady he loves referred to in the French as l'Amant et la Dame. Their dialogue is framed by the observations of the narrator-poet who is mourning the recent death of his lady. The first 24 stanzas describe the mourning poet, the self-described most unhappy lover "le plus dolent des amoureux" , as he embarks alone on horseback, driven to wander by Sadness Tristesse and divested of his capacity to feel by Death Mort. It is at this party that the poet observes the unhappy lover, with whom he can empathize, and his lady.

    I rode past, thinking, recently, Like one who's sad and sorrowful, Of that lament that renders me Of all lovers the most mournful, Since, with his dart so dreadful, Death has stolen my mistress, And left me lonely: left me dull, In the sole charge of Sadness.
