.. O LOVE, 1 they wrong thee much
That say thy sweet is bitter,
When thy rich fruit is such
As nothing can be sweeter.
Fair house of joy and bliss,        5
Where truest pleasure is,
I do adore thee;
I know thee what thou art,
I serve thee with my heart
And fall before thee.        10
 
Note 1. From ‘Capt. Tobias Hume’s first part of Airs 1605’. [O.B.V. No. 68.] This is the second of two stanzas first republished in our time by Mr. A. H. Bullen. [back]
