The most romantic love poems


My Mistress' Heart

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

My dear mistress has a heart
  Soft as those kind looks she gave me;
When with Love's resistless art,
  And her eyes, she did enslave me.
But her constancy's so weak,
  She's so wild and apt to wander;
That my jealous heart would break
  Should we live one day asunder.

Melting joys about her move,
  Killing pleasures, wounding blisses;
She can dress her eyes in love,
  And her lips can arm with kisses.
Angels listen when she speaks,
  She's my delight, all mankind wonder;
But my jealous heart would break
  Should we live one day asunder.

John Wilmot (1647 – 1680)
