      Love not me

        Love not me for comely grace,
        For my pleasing eye or face,

        Nor for any outward part:
        No, nor for a constant heart!
        For these may fail or turn to ill:
        Should thou and I sever.

        Keep, therefore, a true woman's eye,
        And love me still, but know not why!
        So hast thou the same reason still
        To dote upon me ever.
