First Line: Because this brook has quenched another's thirst
Last Line: Because she's not content with loving you?
Alternate Author Name(s): Cheyney, Ralph
Subject(s): Beauty; Generosity


Because this brook has quenched another's thirst
Is it less pure? In any sense accurst?

Because another man has ploughed this field,
Should you expect a less abundant yield?

Because another's thrilled, is beauty less?
Because it's shared, does joy become distress?

Why blame her, then, whom you cannot help woo
Because she's not content with loving you?
