Transcript of The Constant Lover By Sir John Sucking

The Constant Lover
By Sir John Suckling Paraphrase Theme I have loved you since the beginning
Three whole days ago
And I shall love you three more days
If this all works out

Time shall go on
But it will never find
Throughout the whole world
A lover as great

But despite our feelings
They are not because of me
I don't have luck with true love
If anything, it's because of her

If it was anyone but her
And her very looks
There could be no other
24 different women could not take her place Sir John Suckling's Background The Constant Lover
Out upon it, I have lov'd
Three whole days together;
And am like to love three more,
If it prove fair weather.

Time shall molt away his wings
Ere he shall discover
In such whole wide world again
Such a constant lover.

But the spite on't is, no praise
Is due at all to me:
Love with me had made no stays
Had it any been but she.

Had it any been but she
And that very face,
There had been at least ere this
A dozen dozen in her place.
