Let us pour all our passion; breast to breast
Let other lovers lie, in love and rest;

Your every touch of grief and care.
He comes by chance, but stays by choice;
Your praises he is quick to voice.

On a hot, hot day, and I in pyjamas for the heat,
To drink there.

The Sonnets Cxxxviii - When My Love Swears That She Is Made Of Truth

Unlearned in the world's false subtleties.

The pride of many men, until you smeared me with lust.

Which hides your life, and shows not half your parts:

Returned to her seclusion horrified.
