The Bargain

Sir Philip Sydney

My true love hath my heart and I have his,
  By just exchange one for another given.
I hold his dear, and mine he cannot miss;
  There never was a better bargain driven.
    My true love hath my heart and I have his.

His heart in me keeps him and me in one,
  My heart in him his thoughts and senses guides;
He loves my heart, for once it was his own;
  I cherish his, because in me it bides.
    My true love hath my heart and I have his.
