Charles Webbe. c. 1678
  
403. Against Indifference
  
MORE love or more disdain I crave; 
  Sweet, be not still indifferent: 
O send me quickly to my grave, 
  Or else afford me more content! 
Or love or hate me more or less,         5
For love abhors all lukewarmness. 
 
Give me a tempest if 'twill drive 
  Me to the place where I would be; 
Or if you'll have me still alive, 
  Confess you will be kind to me.  10
Give hopes of bliss or dig my grave: 
More love or more disdain I crave.
