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.
