First Line: My dear mistress has a heart
Last Line: Should we live one day asunder.
Alternate Author Name(s): Rochester, 2d Earl Of
Subject(s): Jealousy


My dear mistress has a heart
Soft as those kind looks she gave me
When, with love's resistless art
And her eyes, she did enslave me.
But her constancy's so weak --
She's so wild, and apt to wander --
That my jealous heart would break
Should we live one day asunder.

Melting joys about her move,
Killing pleasures, wounding blisses.
She can dress her eyes in love,
And her lips can arm with kisses.
Angels listen when she speaks;
She's my delight, all mankind's wonder;
But my jealous heart would break
Should we live one day asunder.
