TO HIS MISTRESS, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: Choose me your valentine
Last Line: None then will wooe you.
Subject(s): Holidays; Unfaithfulness; Valentine's Day; Infidelity; Adultery; Inconstancy

Choose me your Valentine;
Next, let us marry:
Love to the death will pine,
If we long tarry.

Promise, and keep your vowes,
Or vow ye never:
Loves doctrine disallowes
Troth-breakers ever.

You have broke promise twice
(Deare) to undoe me;
If you prove faithlesse thrice,
None then will wooe you.
