Song. Mediocrity in love rejected.

 GIVE me more love or more disdain ; 
The torrid or the frozen zone 
Bring equal ease unto my pain, 
The temperate affords me none : 
Either extreme of love or hate, 
Is sweeter than a calm estate. 

Give me a storm ; if it be love, 
Like Dana? in that golden shower, 
I swim in pleasure ; if it prove 
Disdain, that torrent will devour 
My vulture-hopes ; and he's possess'd 
Of heaven, that's but from hell released.
Then crown my joys or cure my pain : 
Give me more love or more disdain.
