Francis T. Palgrave, ed. (1824–1897). The Golden Treasury.  1875.
XCVII. "Love not me for comely grace"
LOVE not me for comely grace, 
For my pleasing eye or face, 
Nor for any outward part, 
No, nor for my constant heart,— 
  For those 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
