CHARLES WEBBE

c. 1678

416                                        Against Indifference

MORE love or more disdain I crave,
   Sweet, be not still indifferent:
O send me quickly to my grave,
   Or else afford me more content!
Or love or hate me more or less,
For love abhors all lukewarmness.

Give me a tempest if twill drive
   Me to the place where I would be;
Or if youll have me still alive,
   Confess you will be kind to me.
Give hopes of bliss or dig my grave:
More love or more disdain I crave.
