    The Constant Lover
    by Sir John Suckling (1609-1642)

    Out upon it, I have loved
    Three whole days together!
    And am like to love three more,
    If it prove fair weather.

    Time shall moult away his wings
    Ere he shall discover
    In the whole wide world again
    Such a constant lover.

    But the spite on't is, no praise
    Is due at all to me:
    Love with me had made no stays,
    Had it any been but she.

    Had it any been but she,
    And that very face,
    There had been at least ere this
    A dozen dozen in her place.
