SONNET (4), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Why dost thou say thy heart is gone
Last Line: No, no, ourselves are still the same.
Subject(s): Love


WHY dost thou say thy heart is gone,
And no more mine, no more thine own?
But, past retrieve, for ever wed,
By sacred vow, t' another's bed?

Why dost thou tell me that I lie
Bound in the same perplexed tie,
And that our now divided souls
Are cold, and distant as the poles?

Do'st thou not know, when first our Loves
Were plighted in the secret groves,
Our hearts were chang'd with equal flame,

Say, Chloris, then how can it be?
Could'st thou give me, or I give thee?
No, no, ourselves are still the same.
