Sir John Suckling
 
37. Song
 
OUT upon it, I have lov'd 
  Three whole days together; 
And am like to love three more, 
  If it prove fair weather. 
  
Time shall moult away his wings         5
  Ere he shall discover 
In the whole wide world agen 
  Such a constant Lover. 
  
But the spite on't is, no praise 
  Is due at all to me:  10
Love with me had made no staies 
  Had it any been but she. 
  
Had it any been but she 
  And that very Face, 
There had been at least ere this  15
  A dozen dozen in her place.
