Seccombe and Arber, comps.  Elizabethan Sonnets.  1904.
 
Laura—Part I.
II. Though I do part, my heart yet doth not part
Robert Tofte (1561–1620)
 
THOUGH I do part, my heart yet doth not part;
My poor afflicted body parts in twain,
And doth in pieces two divide my heart:
One piece my fainting spirit doth sustain,
The other part I leave with thee behind,        5
(The better part, and of my heart most dear);
Then to that part, so parted, be thou kind!
And to the same impart thy loving cheer!
  That I, returning, may again unite
  This parted heart; and find for grief, delight.
London.
