"I'll never love Thee more" by James Graham, Marquis of MontroseMY dear and only Love, I pray
That little world of thee
Be governd by no other sway
Than purest monarchy;
For if confusion have a part
(Which virtuous souls abhor),
And hold a synod in thine heart,
Ill never love thee more.
Like Alexander I will reign,
And I will reign alone;
My thoughts did evermore disdain
A rival on my throne.
He either fears his fate too much,
Or his deserts are small,
That dares not put it to the touch,
To gain or lose it all.
And in the empire of thine heart,
Where I should solely be,
If others do pretend a part
Or dare to vie with me,
Or if Committees thou erect,
And go on such a score,
Ill laugh and sing at thy neglect,
And never love thee more.
But if thou wilt prove faithful then,
And constant of thy word,
Ill make thee glorious by my pen
And famous by my sword;
Ill serve thee in such noble ways
Was never heard before;
Ill crown and deck thee all with bays,
And love thee more and more.
