Take, Oh Take Those Lips Away

Take, oh take those lips away

That so sweetly were forsworn,

And those eyes, like break of day,

Lights that do mislead the morn,

But my kisses bring again,

Seals of love, though seal’d in vain.


Hide, oh hide those hills of snow

Which thy frozen bosom bears,

On whose tops the pinks that grow

Are of those that April wears,

But first set my poor heart free,

Bound in those icy chains by thee.


Poem by John Fletcher
