VII. Love’s Power
“My true-love hath my heart”
Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)
 
MY true-love hath my heart, and I have his,
  By just exchange one to the other 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
