Love is my sin and thy dear virtue hate,

Hate of my sin,

grounded on sinful loving:

And thou shalt find it merits not reproving;

Or, if it do,

not from those lips of thine,

That have profaned their scarlet ornaments

And seal'd false bonds of love as oft as mine,

Robb'd others' beds' revenues of their rents.

Thy pity may deserve to pitied be.

If thou dost seek to have what thou dost hide,

By self-example mayst thou be denied!

 

William Shakespeare
