1.  I thought once how Theocritus had sung
  2. But only three in all God’s universe
  3.  Unlike are we, unlike, O princely Heart
  4.  Thou hast thy calling to some palace-floor
  5.  I lift my heavy heart up solemnly
  6.  Go from me. Yet I feel that I shall stand
  7.  The face of all the world is changed, I think
  8.  What can I give thee back, O liberal
  9.  Can it be right to give what I can give
  10.  Yet, love, mere love, is beautiful indeed
  11.  And therefore if to love can be desert
  12.  Indeed this very love which is my boast
  13.  And wilt thou have me fashion into speech
  14.  If thou must love me, let it be for nought
  15.  Accuse me not, beseech thee, that I wear
  16.  And yet, because thou over comest so
  17. My poet, thou canst touch on all the notes
  18.  I never gave a lock of hair away
  19.  The soul’s Rialto hath its, merchandise
  20.  Beloved, my Beloved, when I think
  21.  Stay over again, and yet once over again
  22.  When our two souls stand up erect and strong
  23.  It is indeed so? If I lay here dead
  24. Let the world’s sharpness like a clasping knife
  25.  A heavy heart, Beloved, have I borne
  26.  I Lived with visions for my company
  27. My own Beloved, who has lifted me
  28.  My leters! all deadpaper, mute and white
  29.  I think of thee! my thoughts do twine and bud
  30.  I see thine image through my tears tonight
  31. Thou comest! all is said without a word
  32. The firt time that the sun rose on thine oath
  33.  Yes, call me by my pet name! let me hear
  34.  With the same heart, I said, I’ll answer thee
  35. If I leave all for thee, wilt thou exchange
  36. When we met first and loved I did not build
  37.  Pardon, oh pardon, that my soul should make
  38.  First time he kissed me, he but only kissed
  39. Because thou hast the power and own’st the grace
  40. Oh, yes! they love through all this world of ours
  41.  I thank all who have loved me in their hearts
  42.  My future will not copy fair my past
  43.  How do I love thee? Let me count the ways
  44.  Beloved, thou hast brough me many flowers
