Then, O, then, let that suffice!
Need not, need not more afflict me!
From your presence interdict me!
Unto him that hell sustains,
Need be sought, to his tormenting!
You are still new pains inventing!
By my love, long, firm, and true,
By these tears, my grief expressing ;
By this pipe, which, nights and days,
Pity me! my fault confessing!
Or if I may not desire
May, with penance, be suspended;
Yet let me full pardon crave,
With soon death, my fault amended!

SINCE true penance hath suspended
More I'll grant than you desire!
Faults confessed are half amended;
In this half, all that I crave!
Therefore, banish now the terror
In your guiltless grievèd mind!
For, though you have made an error,
First beginning it did fetch!
Ne'er my sight I'll interdict thee
Ne'er speak words more, dipped in gall!
What is past shall now suffice!
Now new joys I'll be inventing!
May thy passèd woes surpass.
Too long thou hast felt tormenting!
So great love and faith sustains!
Let these eyes (by thy confessing,
Never see more nights, nor days!
Let my woes be past expressing!
I cease to be kind and true.
Thus are both our states amended!
Fuller pardon than you crave!
And my fear is quite suspended;
Wrought th' effect I most desire.
THAT ONLY HER BEAUTY AND VOICE
PASSION may my judgement blear!
But (I speak it to my pain;
Ladies, I do think there be,
Surely, I will not deny
But since her notes charmed mine ear,
UPON HER PROTESTING, THAT NOW,
LADY! you are with beauties so enriched
As I can hardly find,
Which of them all hath most my heart bewitched.
Whether your skin so white, so smooth, so tender, Or face so lovely fair,
Or long heart-binding hair,
Or dainty hand, or leg and foot so slender;
Or whether your sharp wit and lively spirit,
Or speech which doth true eloquence inherit.
Most lovely, all, and each, of them doth move me
I love you most; because you please to love me!
