TRUCE IN LOVE ENTREATED, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: No more, blind god! For see, my heart
Last Line: Wound her, for 'tis for her I die.
Subject(s): Love

No more, blind god! for see, my heart
Is made thy quiver, where remains
No void place for another dart;
And, alas! that conquest gains
Small praise, that only brings away
A tame and unresisting prey.

Behold a nobler foe, all arm'd,
Defies thy weak artillery,
That hath thy bow and quiver charm'd,
A rebel beauty, conquering thee:
If thou dar'st equal combat try,
Wound her, for 'tis for her I die.
