MY PARADISE

WHICH PARADISE DO I AGAIN SORT?

WHEN I HAVE THEE CLOSE, NEVER FOUGHT-

WHAT VIRTUES DO I OWE AGAIN MY LOVE,

WHEN THOU DAZZLE WITH THE SUN BEAMS-DANCING DOVE.

 

IF PARADISE NEEDS VIRTUES, I OWE NONE:

MY LOVE SO INNOCENT,UNBENT BEAMS 

AND MY HEART GOES A-MAYING FOR THY DREAMS

FORTHWITH THOU FATTEN IN SMILES SHONE:

 

OH! PARADISE, THOU NOT NEED COME FOR ME

FOR MINE STANDS, DAZZLER THAN ALL EVER BEHELD-

YOU ARE LATE FOR IN LOVE I'VE BEEN HELD WITH SINEWS

WHEREIN I NOW STAND,INNOCENT WITH ALL THE CLUES.
