To cause accord or to agree,
Two contraries in one degree,
And in one point, as seemeth me,
To all man's wit it cannot be:
It is impossible.

Of heat and cold when I complain
And say that heat doth cause my pain,
When cold doth shake me every vein
And both at once, I say again
It is impossible.

That man that hath his heart away,
If life liveth there, as men do say
That he heartless should last one day
Alive and not to turn to clay,
It is impossible.

Twixt life and death, say what who saith,
There liveth no life that draweth breath;
They join so near and eke, i' faith,
To seek for life by wish of death,
It is impossible.

Yet love, that all thing doth subdue,
Whose power there may no life eschew,
Hath wrought in me that I may rue
These miracles to be so true,
That are impossible.
