THIRD BOOK OF AIRS: SONG 23, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Come, oh, come, my life's delight
Last Line: As swift to me as heavenly light!
Subject(s): Courtship; Desire; Love; Seduction


Come, oh, come, my life's delight,
Let me not in languor pine!
Love loves no delay;
The more enjoyed the more divine:
Oh, come, and take from me
The pain of being deprived of thee!
Thou all sweetness dost enclose
Like a little world of bliss.
Beauty guards thy looks: the rose
In them pure and eternal is.
Come then, and make thy flight
As swift to me as heavenly light!
