Francis T. Palgrave, ed. (1824–1897). The Golden Treasury.  1875.
 
Colonel Lovelace
 
LXXXIII. To Lucasta, on Going to the Wars
 
TELL me not, Sweet, I am unkind 
  That from the nunnery 
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind, 
  To war and arms I fly. 
  
True, a new mistress now I chase,         5
  The first foe in the field; 
And with a stronger faith embrace 
  A sword, a horse, a shield. 
  
Yet this inconstancy is such 
  As you too shall adore;  10
I could not love thee, Dear, so much, 
  Loved I not Honour more.
