THE TENDER HUSBAND: SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Why, lovely charmer, tell me why
Last Line: I cannot love thee less nor more.


Why, lovely charmer, tell me why,
So very kind, so very shy?
Why does that cold forbidding air
Give damps of sorrow and despair?
Or why that smile my soul subdue,
And kindle up my flames anew?

In vain you strive with all your art,
By turns to freeze and fire my heart:
When I behold a face so fair,
So sweet a look, so soft an air,
My ravished soul is charmed all o'er,
I cannot love thee less nor more.
