Can someone analyze the poem “I asked a thief” and tell me how the meaning of lady changes. ?
I asked a thief to steal me a peach:
He turned up his eyes.
I ask'd a lithe lady to lie her down:
Holy and meek, she cries.
As soon as I went
An Angel came:
He wink'd at the thief,
And smil'd at the dame;
And without one word [said]1
Had a peach from the tree,
[And still as a maid]2
Enjoy'd the lady.

The thief is the lady’s lover because he laid her down and made her cry, as she was loosing her virginity.

its about a woman losing her virginity, the thief is her lover and the meaning of lady does not change
