Sonnet I

Dost see how unregarded now        That piece of beauty passes
There was a time when I did vow        To that alone;    But mark the fate of faces;

If you refuse me once and think again

If you refuse me once, and think again, I will complain
You are deceiv'd, love is no work of art, It must be got and born, Not made and worn, By every one that hath a heart
Or do you think they more than once can die, Whom you deny
