88. The Bargain
  
MY true love hath my heart, and I have his, 
  By just exchange one for another given: 
I hold his dear, and mine he cannot miss, 
  There never was a better bargain driven: 
      My true love hath my heart, and I have his.         5
 
His heart in me keeps him and me in one, 
  My heart in him his thoughts and senses guides: 
He loves my heart, for once it was his own, 
  I cherish his because in me it bides: 
      My true love hath my heart, and I have his.  10
