Samuel Daniel Quotes

    Sonnet X: O Then I Love

    O then I love and draw this weary breath,
    For her the cruel Fair, within whose brow
    I written find the sentence of my death
    In unkind letters, wrought she cares not how.
    O thou that rul'st the confines of the night,
    Laughter-loving Goddess, worldly pleasures' Queen,
    Intenerate that heart that sets so light
    The truest love that ever yet was seen.
    And cause her leave to triumph in this wise
