  • For shame deny that thou bear'st love to any
    Who for thy self art so unprovident.
    Grant if thou wilt, thou art beloved of many
    But that thou none lov'st is most evident
    For thou art so possessed with murderous hate
    That 'gainst thyself thou stick'st not to conspire
    Seeking that beauteous roof to ruinate
    Which to repair should be thy chief desire
    O! change thy thought that I may change my mind
    Shall hate be fairer lodged than gentle love?
    Be as thy presence is gracious and kind
    Or to thyself at least kind-hearted prove
    Make thee another self for love of me
    That beauty still may live in thine or thee Writer/s: , TRADITIONAL, PD TRADITIONAL, RUFUS WAINWRIGHT
