FOURTH BOOK OF AIRS: SONG 10, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Love me or not, love her I must or die
Last Line: So would I love that neither should repent.
Subject(s): Love


LOVE me or not, love her I must or die;
Leave me or not, follow her, needs must I.
O that her grace would my wished comforts give!
How rich in her, how happy should I live!

All my desire, all my delight should be,
Her to enjoy, her to unite to me:
Envy should cease, her would I love alone:
Who loves by looks, is seldom true to one.

Could I enchant, and that it lawful were,
Her would I charm softly that none should hear.
But love enforced rarely yields firm content;
So would I love that neither should repent.
