“Lovest thou me for my beauty’s sake?
Love me not then!
Love the victorious, glittering Sun,
The fadeless, deathless, marvellous One!”

“Lovest thou me for my youth’s sake?
Love me not then!
Love the triumphant, unperishing Spring,
Who every year new charms doth bring!”

“Lovest thou me for treasure’s sake?
Oh, love me not then!
Love the deep, the wonderful Sea,
Its jewels are worthier love than me!”

“Lovest thou me for Love’s own sake?
Ah sweet, then love me!
More than the Sun and the Spring and the Sea,
Is the faithful heart I will yield to thee!”
