An Argument by Thomas Moore

Home / Short Love Poems, Thomas Moore / An Argument by Thomas Moore

I’ve oft been told by learned friars,
That wishing and the crime are one,
And Heaven punishes desires
As much as if the deed were done.

If wishing damns us, you and I
Are damned to all our heart’s content;
Come, then, at least we may enjoy
Some pleasure for our punishment!
