First Line: Tis what thou wast - not what thou art
Last Line: And scout his sovereignty.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Love

'Tis what thou wast -- not what thou art,
Which I no longer know --
That made thee sovereign of my heart,
And serves to keep thee so:

And couldst thou, coming to the throne,
Thy Self, unaltered, see,
Thou mightst the occupant disown
And scout his sovereignty.
