The Bargain

  by: 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.

 

His heart in me keeps him and me in one,
My heart in him his thoughts and senses guides;
He love 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.
