Love Not Me For Comely Grace

Love not me for comely grace,
For my pleasing eye or face;
Nor for any outward part,
No, nor for a constant heart:
          For these may fail or turn to ill,
                    So thou and I shall sever.
Keep, therefore, a true woman's eye,
And love my still, but know not why;
          So hast thou the same reason still

                    To doat upon me ever.
