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:

So thou and I shall sever.

Keep therefore a true women’s eye,

And love me still, but know not why!

So hast thou the same reason still

To dote upon me ever.

– John Wilbye
