Summary and Analysis
- a stanza of 15 lines rhyming AABB
She pays a tribute to her honoured as well as dear father. She has very little to give this worthy man. Her bond (contract) to him will still remain in force. She uses the poem as a payment, but her debt is such a great one that she will pay as long as she will live. Her debt is not paid until she dies.
