Tell me not, Sweet
by Richard Lovelace

Tell me not, Sweet, I am unkind

For, from the nunnery

Of thy chaste breast, and quiet mind,

To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,

The first foe in the field;

And with a stronger faith- embrace

A sword, a horse, a shield.

Yet this inconstancy is such

As you too shall adore;

For, I could not love thee, Dear, so much,

Loved I not honour more.
