- USIC to hear, why hear'st thou music sadly?
- Sweets with sweets war not, joy delights in joy:
- Why lov'st thou that which thou receiv'st not gladly,
- Or else receiv'st with pleasure thine annoy?
- If the true concord of well-tunèd sounds,
- By unions married, do offend thine ear,
- They do but sweetly chide thee, who confounds
- In singleness the parts that thou shouldst bear.
- Mark how one string, sweet husband to another,
- Strikes each in each by mutual ordering;
- Resembling sire and child and happy mother,
- Who, all in one, one pleasing note do sing;
- Whose speechless song, being many, seeming one,
- Sings this to thee, 'Thou single wilt prove none.'
