THE DOUBLES, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: When I consider how love works us wrong
Last Line: And love is but another name for sorrow!
Subject(s): Love - Complaints


WHEN I consider how love works us wrong,
And from delight forever trouble borrows,
Then this shall be the burden of my song:
Mother of Love, thou art the Mother of Sorrows!
But when I witness how the selfsame cross
Borne by two hearts may make but one thereof,
I must confess my logic at a loss:
Mother of Sorrows, thou art the Mother of Love!
Learn this to-day, and thou hast learned enough,
The fool himself will learn it on the morrow:
That Sorrow is the other self of Love,
And Love is but another name for Sorrow!
