THE LOVE SONNETS OF PROTEUS: 46. FAREWELL TO JULIET (8), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Thrice happy fools! What wisdom shall we learn
Last Line: "thou knowest that I love thee more than these."


Thrice happy fools! What wisdom shall we learn
In this world or the next, if next there be,
More deep, more full, more worthy our concern
Than that first word of folly taught us? We
Had suddenly grown silent. I could see
Your cheek had lost a little of its hue,
And your lips trembled, and beseechingly
Your blue eyes turned to mine, and well I knew
Your woman's instinct had divined my speech,
The meaning of a word so lightly spoken.
The word was a confession, clear to each,
A pledge as plain and as distinct a token
As that of Peter at his master's knees,
"Thou knowest that I love thee more than these."
