          FOUR SONNETS - III

Having no heart except this heart you see,
No love except the love which I have shown
And which you find unworthy of your own,
I cannot bargain with you. Let it be.
There is no richer, greater thing in me
Hidden away like some precious stone
Against the day when your full price is known,
And known the measure of my poverty.

I know the heart is frivolous and dull
For you have so assayed it, and the worth
Of love from such a heart I understand,
Although one time you found them beautiful
And I was richer than the Queens of earth
Pouring my silly pennies in your hand.
