   English Poetry I: From Chaucer to Gray.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
56. A Ditty
 
Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)
 
 
MY true-love hath my heart, and I have his,
By just exchange one for another given:
I hold his dear, and mine he cannot miss,
There never was a better bargain driven:
  My true-love hath my heart, and I have his.        5
 
His heart in me keeps him and me in one,
My heart in him his thoughts and senses guides:
He loves my heart, for once it was his own,
I cherish his because in me it bides:
  My true-love hath my heart, and I have his.        10
