When I Loved You
By Thomas Moore
WHEN I loved you, I can’t but allow
  I had many an exquisite minute;
But the scorn that I feel for you now
  Hath even more luxury in it!
Thus, whether we’re on or we’re off,        5
  Some witchery seems to await you;
To love you is pleasant enough,
  And oh! ’t is delicious to hate you!
