THE RECONCILEMENT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Come, let us now resolve at last
Last Line: Sure never is too late!
Alternate Author Name(s): Buckingham & Normandy, 1st Duke Of
Subject(s): Desire; Love

COME, let us now resolve at last
To live and love in quiet;
We'll tie the knot so very fast
That Time shall ne'er untie it.

The truest joys they seldom prove
Who free from quarrels live:
'Tis the most tender part of love
Each other to forgive.

When least I seem'd concern'd, I took
No pleasure nor no rest;
And when I feign'd an angry look,
Alas! I loved you best.

Own but the same to me -- you'll find
How blest will be our fate.
O to be happy -- to be kind --
Sure never is too late!
