    Sir Anthony Quayle reads Sir Philip Sidney's My True-Love Hath My Heart And I Have His

    My True-Love Hath My Heart And I Have His
    by Sir Philip Sidney (1554-1586)

    My true-love hath my heart, and I have his,
    By just exchange one for the other given:
    I hold his dear, and mine he cannot miss;
    There never was a bargain better driven.
    His heart in me keeps me and him in one,
    My heart in him his thoughts and senses guides;
    He loves my heart for once it was his own;
    I cherish his because in me it bides.
    His heart his wound receivèd from my sight;
    My heart was wounded with his wounded heart;
    For as from me on him his hurt did light,
    So still methought in me his hurt did smart:
    Both equal hurt, in this change sought our bliss,
    My true love hath my heart and I have his.
