Celebration Of Service Friday (#23)


“Tell me not, sweet, I am unkind

That from the nunnery

Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind

To warlike arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I serve

The first foe in the field

And with a sterner faith embrace

The sword, a horse, a shield.

Yet this inconstancy is such

As thou too shalt adore.

I could not love thee, dear, so much

Loved I not honour more.”

(Richard Lovelace)
