- Editor’s Note1Betwixt mine eye and heart a league is took,
- 2And each doth good turns now unto the other.
- 3When that mine eye is famished for a look,
- 4Or heart in love with sighs himself doth smother,
- 5With my love's picture then my eye doth feast,
- 6And to the painted banquet bids my heart.
- 7Another time mine eye is my heart's guest,
- 8And in his thoughts of love doth share a part.
- 9So either by thy picture or my love,
- Editor’s Note10Thyself away art present still with me;
- 11For thou not farther than my thoughts canst move,
- 12And I am still with them, and they with thee;
- 13 Or if they sleep, thy picture in my sight
- 14 Awakes my heart to heart's and eye's delight.
