Leave Me, O Love

Leave me, O Love, which reachest but to dust;
And thou, my mind, aspire to higher things;
Grow rich in that which never taketh rust;
Whatever fades but fading pleasure brings.

~ Sir Philip Sidney

Painting: Portrait of a Young Man - said to be Sir Philip Sidney - 1595 - by Isaac Oliver
