(1612 – 16 September 1672 / Northampton, England)

We May Live Together

If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole Mines of gold
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that Rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompetence.
Thy love is such I can no way repay.
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so persever
That when we live no more, we may live ever.

A very good love poem. Thy love is such I can no way repay beautiful
so nice wife and husband relation
Just romantic........
This is so sweet and romantic.
This poem shows how deeply disturbed Anne was, as forensics now tells us this must of been after her second murder.
