Poem by Robert Herrick


To Oenone


What conscience, say, is it in thee,
When I a heart had one, [won]
To take away that heart from me,
And to retain thy own?

For shame or pity, now incline
To play a loving part;
Either to send me kindly thine,
Or give me back my heart.

Covet not both; but if thou dost
Resolve to part with neither;
Why!  yet to shew that thou art just,
Take me and mine together.



Robert Herrick
