That which her slender waist confind,
Shall now my joyful temples bind;
No monarch but would give his crown,
His arms might do what this has done.
It was my heavens extremest sphere,
The pale which held that lovely deer,
My joy, my grief, my hope, my love,
Did all within this circle move.
A narrow compass, and yet there
Dwelt all thats good, and all thats fair;
Give me but what this ribbon bound,
Take all the rest the sun goes round.
