That monthly changes in her circle orb,
Lest that thy love prove likewise variable.

My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.

Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
