THE CONSTANT LOVER

By
Sir John Suckling
1609 - 1642


&/\&/\&

Out upon it    I have loved

Three whole days together;

And am like to love three more,

If it prove fair weather.
 

Time shall molt away his wings,

Ere he shall discover

In the whole wide world again

Such a constant lover.
 

But the spite on't  is, no praise

Is due at all to me;

Love with me had made no stays,

Had it any been but she.
 

Had it any been but she,

And that very face,

There had been at least ere this

A dozen dozen in her place.
