Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms

Believeme,ifallthoseendearingyoungcharms,
WhichIgazeonsofondlytoday,
Weretochangebytomorrow,andfleetinmyarms,
Likefairy-giftsfadingaway,
Thouwouldststillbeadored,asthismomentthouart,
Letthylovelinessfadeasitwill,
Andaroundthedearruineachwishofmyheart
Wouldentwineitselfverdantlystill.

Itisnotwhilebeautyandyoutharethineown,
Andthycheeksunprofanedbyatear
Thatthefervorandfaithofasoulcanbeknown,
Towhichtimewillbutmaketheemoredear;
No,theheartthathastrulylovedneverforgets,
Butastrulylovesontotheclose,
Asthesunflowerturnsonhergod,whenhesets,
Thesamelookwhichsheturnedwhenherose.
