      Sweet love, renew | thy force;| be it not said
            ,             ,       ,         ,     ,
      Thy edge | should blunt|er be | than^ap|petite,
             ,       ,         ,       ,        ,
      Which^but | today | by feed|ing is | allayed,
         ,        ,         ,        ,        ,
      Tomor|row sharp|ened in | his for|mer might:
           ,         ,         ,        ,            ,
      So love | be thou,| although | today | thou* fill
           ,        ,      x       2         ,          ,
      Thy hun|gry eyes, | even till they | wink with | fullness,
