My favorite love poem

To Anthea, Who May command Him Anything

"Bid me to live, and I will live They protestant to be: Or bid me love , and I will give A loving heart to thee

A heart as soft, a heart as kind, A heart as sound and free As in the whole world thou canst find, That heart I'll give to thee.

Bid that heart stay , and it will stay, To honor they decree: Or bid it languish quite away, And't shall do so for thee.

Bit me to weep , and I will weep While I have eyes to see: And having none, yet I will keep A heart to weep for thee.

Bid me despair, and I'll despair, Under that cypress tree: Or bid me die, and i will dare E'en death, to die for thee.

Thour art my life, my love, my heart, The very eyes of me, And hast command of every part, To live and die for thee. "

Robert Herrick
