Then wrong not dearest of my heart,
SIR WALTER RALEIGH.
My true-love hath my heart, and I have his,
There never was a better bargain driven; My true-love hath my heart, and I have his.
His heart in me keeps him and me in one,
My heart in him his thoughts and senses guides; He loves my heart, for once it was his own, I cherish his because in me it bides: My true-love hath my heart, and I have his. SIR PHILIP SIDNEY.
Ah, I remember well (and how can I
But evermore remember well?) when first
Our flame began, when scarce we knew what was The flame we felt; when as we sat and sighed,
THE PASSIONATE SHEPHERD.
And looked upon each other, and conceived
In that first garden of our simpleness,
We spent our childhood. But when years began
SHEPHERD TO HIS
Come live with me, and be my love,
And we will sit upon the rocks,
And I will make thee beds of roses,
A cap of flowers, and a kirtle,
A gown made of the finest wool,
A belt of straw and ivy-buds,
The shepherd swains shall dance and sing
ANSWER TO THE SAME.
If all the world and Love were young, And truth in every shepherd's tongue, These pretty pleasures might me move To live with thee and be thy love.
Time drives the flocks from field to fold, When rivers rage, and rocks grow cold; Then Philomel becometh dumb,
The rest complain of cares to come.
The flowers do fade, and wanton fields,
Thy gowns, thy shoes, thy beds of roses,
Thy belt of straw and ivy-buds,
But, could youth last, and love still breed,
Were I as base as is the lowly plain,
And you, my Love as high as heaven above,
Yet should the thoughts of me, your humble
Ascend to heaven in honor of my Love.
As are the deepest bottoms of the main, Whereso'er you were, with you, my love should
Were you the earth, dear Love, and I the skies,
Whereso'er I am, below, or else above you, Whereso'er you are, my heart shall truly love
SHALL I TELL YOU WHOM I LOVE!
Shall I tell you whom I love?
Hearken then awhile to me;
As I now shall versify,
Nature did her so much right,
As she scorns the help of art;
As ne'er yet embraced a heart;
