What was the full poem of To His Coy Mistress?

Had we but world enough and time,  This coyness, lady, were no crime.  We would sit down, and think which way  To walk, and pass our long love’s day.  Thou by the Indian Ganges’ side  Shouldst rubies find; I by the tide  Of Humber would complain. I would  Love you ten years before the flood,  And you should, if you please, refuse  Till the conversion of the Jews.  My vegetable love should grow  Vaster than empires and more slow;  An hundred years should go to praise  Thine eyes, and on thy forehead gaze;  Two hundred to adore each breast,  But thirty thousand to the rest;  An age at least to every part,  And the last age should show your heart.  For, lady, you deserve this state,  Nor would I love at lower rate.
