And true plain hearts do in the faces rest : A fin or shame, or loss of maidenhead;
Where can we find two fitter hemispheres Yet this enjoys before it woo,
Without sharp North, without declining West ? And pamper'd swells with one blood made of two; Whatever dies was not mixt equally. And this, alas! is more than we could do. If our two loves be one, both thou and I

Though she were true when you met her,

Late school-boys, or four 'prentices; Now thou hast lov'd me one whole day,
Go tell coure-huntsmen that the king will ride; To-Morrow when thou leav't what wilt thou say? Call country ants to harvest offices; Wilt thon chen antedate some new-made vow? Love, all alike, no season knows nor clime, Or say that now

She's all states, and all princes I,
Princes do but play us; compar'd to this
All honour's mimic, all wealth alchymy.
Thou, Sun! art half as happy as we
In that the world's contracted thus :
Thine age asks ease; and Gince thy duties be Which is, to keep that hid.
To warm the world, that's done in warming us.
Shine here to us, and thou art every where; It were but madness now t' impart
This bed thy center is, these walls thy sphere, The kill of (pecular stone, When he which can have learn'd the art To cut it can find none.
THE INDIFFERENT, So if I now should utter this,
I call love both fair and brown; Others (because no more
Her whom abundance melts, and her whom want Sach fuffe to work upon there is)
betrays; Would love but as before.
Her who loves loneness belt, and her who sports
and plays; But he who loveliness within
Her whom the country form'd, and whom the Hach found, all outward lothes;
town; For he who colour loves and skin,
Her who believes, and her who tries; Lores but their oldest clothes.
Her who ftill weeps with spongy eyes,
And her who is dry cork, and never cries : If, as I have, you also do
I can love her, and her, and you, and you ;
I can love any, so the be not true.
Will no other vice content you?
Will it not serve your turn to do as did your And if this love, though placed fo,
mothers? From profane men you hide, Which will no faith on this bestow,
Or have you all old viccs worn, and now would
find out others? Or if they do deride :
Or doth a fear that men are true torment you?
Oh! we are not, be not you so; Then you have done a braver thing
Let me, and do you twenty know. Than all the Worthies did,
Rob mc, but bind me not, and let me go. And a braver thence will spring,
Must I, who came to travel thorough you, Which is, to keep that hid.
Grow your fixt subject because you are true ?
Venus heard me sing this song,
And by love's sweetest sweet, variety, she swore
She heard not this till now; it should be so no B:31 old fool! unruly Sun! Why dost thou thus
(us? She went, examin'd, and return'a cre long, Tarough windows and through curtains look on And said, Alas! fome two or three 109 to thy mocions lovers seafoas run ?
Poor beradics in love there be
Which think to 'stablish dangerous conftancy; The phenix riddle hath more wit
We die and rise the same, and prove
For every hour that thou wilt spare me now
We can die by it, if not live by love.
And thus invoke us, you whom reverend love
Let me think any rival's letter mine,
THE TRIPLE FOOL.
For God's sake hold your tongue, and let me love,
Lam two fools, I know,
Alas! alas ! who's injur'd by my love?
LOVER'S INFINITENESS. If yet I have not all thy love, Dear! I fall never have it all : I cannot breathe one other figh to move, Nor can entreat one other tear to fall; And all my treasure, which should purchase Sighs, tears, and oaths, and letters, I have spent Yet no more can be due to me Than 34 the bargain pade was it eant:
Call's what you will, we are made fuch by love;
i then ths gift of love was partial,
It cangot be
If in thine my life thou waste,
That art the life of me.
Let not thy divining heart
Destiny may take thy part, Which have their stocks entire, and can in tears, And may thy fears fulfil; la ágts, in sathis, in letters, outbid me,
But think that we This new love may begee new fears,
Are but laid aside to sleep: For this love was not yow'd by thee;
They who one another keep
Alive ne'er parted be.
Telwald not have all yet;
When last I dy'd (and, Dear! I die
I heard me say, Tell her anon
SSLITEST Love! I do not go
Yet I found something like a beart,
Yihernight the sun went hence,
Ou! do not die, for I shall hate
But yet chou canst not die, I know :
Or if when thou, the world's soul, goelt,
