Herbert J.C. Grierson, ed. (1886–1960). Metaphysical Lyrics & Poems of the 17th C.  1921.
 
Thomas Carew
 
27. To my inconstant Mistris
 
WHEN thou, poore excommunicate 
  From all the joyes of love, shalt see 
The full reward, and glorious fate, 
  Which my strong faith shall purchase me, 
  Then curse thine owne inconstancy.         5
  
A fayrer hand than thine, shall cure 
  That heart, which thy false oathes did wound; 
And to my soul, a soul more pure 
  Than thine, shall by Loves hand be bound, 
And both with equall glory crown'd.  10
  
Then shalt thou weepe, entreat, complain 
  To Love, as I did once to thee; 
When all thy teares shall be as vain 
  As mine were then, for thou shalt bee 
  Damn'd for thy false Apostasie.  15
