The Bargain

Rating: 2.8
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 loves 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.

Now that is the way love should conducted- I have his heart instead of mine and he has mine instead of his. That arrangement would certainly put a lot more emphasis on the quality of a person's interior and a whole lot less on his or her outward gorgeousness.

This was one of Jackie Onassis's favorite poems, according to her daughter, Caroline.
