TO A CHRISTIAN LADY
MY soul in thine; thy Soul in mine;
Our hearts a unity, a tie;
One thought, one soul, one wish, one mind;__
For I am thou, and thou art I.
And yet, I thou? Can that be so?
Am I so pure, clean as a dove ?
Ah me! My heart much Sin doth know;
'Tis stained; but white's that of my love.
A heart hath evil and hath good:
Thou art the good; the evil, I:
Thou giv'st the heart its holy mood,
But I the sins that in it lie,
