I, Tartuffe - Kollin Kennedy

I, Tartuffe, am a man of Narcissus,

And am no fool to our own precipice:

Steeped & balance of our own love for none

With all loves considered under the sun.

I tell my heart, yet my heart tells another,

Though mine heart doubts to question on a lover

Since the love may be other than mine own

That’s well with love that grass & flowers hone;

I have nat’ral face & hold up a glass

To bring to health all that may drink alas;

I love, & toast by it to love no love

And allow what may that permits above;

I am Tartuffe, though I’m not what I am:

For I love the sheep to speak as a lamb.
