False though She be

By William Congreve


FALSE though she be to me and love,
         I'll ne'er pursue revenge;
For still the charmer I approve,
         Though I deplore her change.

In hours of bliss we oft have met:
         They could not always last;
And though the present I regret,
         I'm grateful for the past.
