Witchcraft by a Picture

Original Text: 
Donne, John. The Elegies and the Songs and Sonnets of John Donne. Edited by Helen Gardner. London: Oxford University Press, 1965: 37.
1I fix mine eye on thine, and there
2    Pity my picture burning in thine eye,
3My picture drown'd in a transparent tear,
4    When I look lower I espy;
5        Hadst thou the wicked skill
6By pictures made and mard, to kill,
7How many ways mightst thou perform thy will?
8But now I've drunk thy sweet salt tears,
9    And though thou pour more, I'll depart;
10My picture vanish'd, vanish all fears,
11    That I can be endamag'd by that art ;
12        Though thou retain of me
13One picture more, yet that will be,
14Being in thine own heart, from all malice free.
