Hate me a little if you cannot love.
Nor do I wish a faint heart's tricking praise.
I choose the love, but do not mock
My soul with nibbles from begrudging ways.

Scorn me a little if you cannot pour
For me a clear, full glass of wine.
I'll take the drink if it be true and frank,
But not the dregs and drippings of the vine.

Spare me your frail uncertainties.
Test me with hate and let it prove
Whether I'm worthy, whether fit.
Hate me a little if you cannot love.
