A SONG TO CELIA, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Not, celia, that I juster am
Last Line: Tis casy to be true.
Variant Title(s): To Celia
Subject(s): Desire; Love

NOT, Celia, that I juster am
Or better than the rest;
For I would change each hour, like them,
Were not my heart at rest.

But I am tied to very thee
By every thought I have
Thy face I only care to see
Thy heart I only crave.

All that in woman is adored
In thy dear self I find--
For the whole sex can but afford
The handsome and the kind.

Why then should I seek further store,
And still make love anew?
When change itself can give no more,
'Tis casy to be true.
