To Lucasta, Going to the Wars
The copy-text is Lucasta (London, 1649).
Set by Mr. John Laniere.
Going to the Warres.
Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkinde,
That from the Nunnerie
Of thy chaste breast, and quiet mind,
To Warre and Armes I flie.
True; a new Mistresse now I chase, 
The first Foe in the Field;
And with a stronger Faith embrace
A Sword, a Horse, a Shield.
Yet this Inconstancy is such,
As you too shall adore; 
I could not love thee (Deare) so much,
Lov’d I not Honour more.
