No, I never Love thee less,
for all thy feirce disdain;
So fast thy blooming Charms encrease,
thy sparkling Eyes my heart oppress,
each glance renews my pain.
No, I never can Love thee less.
Yet must I fare like busy Flyes,
still to thy brightness turn,
persue thee with my wishing Eyes,
till as each flaming Blush
does rise insensibly I burn.
