SONG TO HER AGAIN, SHE BURNING IN FEVER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Now she burns, as well as I
Last Line: So shalt thou quench her fire, and mine.
Subject(s): Desire


Now she burns, as well as I,
Yet my heat can never die;
She burns that never knew desire,
She that was ice, she now is fire.
She whose cold heart chaste thoughts did arm
So as Love's flames could never warm
The frozen bosom where it dwelt,
She burns, and all her beauties melt.
She burns, and cries, "Love's fires are mild;
Fevers are God's, and he's a child."
Love, let her know the difference
'Twixt the heat of soul and sense:
Touch her with thy flames divine,
So shalt thou quench her fire, and mine.
