1Pardon me, my dearest love,
2That I place my thoughts above.
4And so shall be while life endures.
5Only my aspiring mind
6No felicity can find
7In this dirty,
8My soul remembers still her birth,
9She being a sparkle of that
10Which ne’er shall set in death or night.
11Nothing here is worth her love;
summum bonum4is above.
13But this body shortly must
14Melt and moulder into
15This due debt can’t be denied;
elements6must me divide.
17Thus, like traitors
old Adam’s rebel rout8.
19Then shall my
20Those eternal joys inherit,
21Which from me shall never part:
22With these thoughts, I cheer my heart.
23Then pardon thy poor
24That hath placed her thoughts above
25Where is endless joy and love.
