WHY I tie about thy wrist
Julia, this my silken twist;
For what other reason is 't,
But to show thee how in part,
Thou my pretty captive art?
But thy bondslave is my heart:
'Tis but silk that bindeth thee,
Snap the thread, and thou art free:
But 'tis otherwise with me;
I am bound, and fast bound so,
That from thee I cannot go,
If I could, I would not so.
