HEART'S PROVING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Do not my undesigning heart disdain
Last Line: Fail not its music to our discontent.


Do not my undesigning heart disdain
That it so many hearts has fellowed,
In this it is but as a fiddle mellowed
Long by a master in desire and pain;

And year by year under his cunning hand
Its common price has interest taken,
For now the strings to deeper tones will waken
For any player who may understand.

So, many a mistress on my heart has spent
Instruction of her fancy's choosing,
Till it is worthy your diviner using --
Fail not its music to our discontent.
