Seite 38 - Our two souls, therefore, which are one, Though I must go, endure not yet A breach, but an expansion, Like gold to airy thinness beat. If they be two, they are two so As stiff twin compasses are two: Thy soul, the fixed foot, makes no show To move, but doth if th
Seite 37 - As virtuous men pass mildly away, And whisper to their souls to go, Whilst some of their sad friends do say 'The breath goes now,' and some say 'No'; So let us melt, and make no noise, No tear-floods nor sigh-tempests move; 'Twere profanation of our joys To tell the laity our love. Moving of th' earth brings harms and fears, Men reckon what it did and meant; But trepidation of the spheres, Though greater far, is innocent. Dull sublunary lovers...
Seite xiv - On a huge hill, Cragged, and steep, Truth stands, and he that will Reach her, about must, and about must go; And what the hill's suddenness resists, win so; Yet strive so, that before age, death's twilight, Thy soul rest, for none can work in that night.
Seite 1 - And we in us find the eagle and the dove The phoenix riddle hath more wit By us; we two being one are it. So to one neutral thing both sexes fit. We die and rise the same, and prove Mysterious by this love.
Seite xxxiv - Yet do not; I would not go, Though at next door we might meet, Though she were true when you met her, And last till you write your letter, Yet she Will be False, ere I come, to two or three.

My face in thine eye, thine in mine appears, And true plain hearts do in the faces rest, Where can we find two better hemispheres Without sharp north, without declining west?
Seite xxxiii - Song Go, and catch a falling star, Get with child a mandrake root, Tell me, where all past years are, Or who cleft the Devil's foot, Teach me to hear mermaids singing, Or to keep off envy's stinging, And find What wind Serves to advance an honest mind.
Seite 39 - And pictures in our eyes to get Was all our propagation. As, 'twixt two equal armies, fate Suspends uncertain victory, Our souls, which, to advance their state, Were gone out, hung 'twixt her and me. And whilst our souls negotiate there, We like sepulchral statues lay; All day, the same our postures were, And we said nothing, all the day.
Seite xxxv - I HAVE done one braver thing Than all the Worthies did, And yet a braver thence doth spring, Which is, to keep that hid.
Seite 39 - Was all the means to make us one, And pictures in our eyes to get Was all our propagation.
