First 217 words of the document:

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
And true plain hearts do in the faces rest
Where can we find two better
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.
