William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Restoration Verse.  1910.
 
False Though She Be to Me and Love
By William Congreve (1670–1729)
 
FALSE though she be to me and love,
  I’ll ne’er pursue revenge;
For still the charmer I approve,
  Though I deplore her change.
 
In hours of bliss we oft have met:        5
  They could not always last;
And though the present I regret,
  I’m grateful for the past.
