    How will our unborn children scoff at us
    In the good years to come,
    The happier ears to come,

 by Matthew Prior

Accept, my Love, as true a heart
As ever lover gave;
'Tis free (it vows) from my art,
And proud to be your slave.

Then take it kindly, as 'twas meant,
And let the giver live,
