If thou must love me, let it be for naught, except for love's sake only, do not say “I love her for

If thou must love me, let it be for naught
Except for love's sake only. Do not say
“I love her for her smile...her look...

A sense of pleasant ease on such a day.”
For these things in themselves, beloved, may be changed,
or changed for thee – and love so wrought may be unwrought so.
