THE GOOD-MORROW.
I WONDER by my troth, what thou and I a
Did, till we loved ? were we not wean'd till
then? b
But suck'd on country pleasures, childishly ? a
Or snorted we in the Seven Sleepers' den? b
'Twas so ; but this, all
pleasures fancies be ; c
If ever any beauty I did see, c
Which I desired, and got, 'twas but a dream of thee.c
And now
good-morrow to our waking souls,
Which watch not one another out of fear ;
For love all love of other sights controls,
And makes one little room an everywhere.
Let sea-discoverers to new worlds have gone ;
Let maps to other, worlds on worlds have shown ;
Let us possess one
world ; each hath
one, and is one.
My face in thine eye, thine in mine
appears,
And true plain hearts do in the faces rest
;
Where can we find two better
hemispheres
Without sharp north, without declining
west ?
Whatever dies, was not mix'd equally ;
If our two loves be one, or thou and I
Love so alike that none can slacken, none can die.
