I loved you first: but afterwards your love 
Outsoaring mine, sang such a loftier song 
As drowned the friendly cooings of my dove. 
Which owes the other most? my love was long, 
And yours one moment seemed to wax more strong; 
I loved and guessed at you, you construed me 
And loved me for what might or might not be – 
Nay, weights and measures do us both a wrong. 
For verily love knows not ‘mine’ or ‘thine;’ 
With separate ‘I’ and ‘thou’ free love has done, 
For one is both and both are one in love: 
Rich love knows nought of ‘thine that is not mine;’ 
Both have the strength and both the length thereof, 
Both of us, of the love which makes us one.
