71. Love not me for comely grace
John Wilbye's Second Set of Madrigals
  
LOVE not me for comely grace, 
For my pleasing eye or face, 
Nor for any outward part, 
No, nor for a constant heart: 
    For these may fail or turn to ill,         5
      So thou and I shall sever: 
Keep, therefore, a true woman's eye, 
And love me still but know not why— 
    So hast thou the same reason still 
      To doat upon me ever!  10
