Vol. III. The Eighteenth Century: Addison to Blake
Song: ‘False though she be to me and love’
By William Congreve (1670–1729)
FALSE though she be to me and love,
  I ’ll ne’er pursue revenge;
For still the charmer I approve,
  Though I deplore her change.
In hours of bliss we oft have met,        5
  They could not always last;
And though the present I regret
  I ’m grateful for the past.
