A Song. High State And Honours To Others Impart By John Dryden

A Song. High State And Honours To Others Impart

High state and honours to others impart,
But give me your heart:
That treasure, that treasure alone,
I beg for my own.

So gentle a love, so fervent a fire,
My soul does inspire;
That treasure, that treasure alone,
I beg for my own.
Your love let me crave;
Give me in possessing
So matchless a blessing;
That empire is all I would have.
Love’s my petition,
All my ambition;
If e’er you discover
So faithful a lover,
So real a flame,
I’ll die, I’ll die,
So give up my game.
