Quotation by Michael Drayton

No far-fetched sigh shall ever wound my breast,
Love from mine eye a tear shall never wring,
Nor in Ah me's my whining sonnets dressed,
A libertine, fantastically I sing.
My verse is the true image of my mind,
Ever in motion, still desiring change;
Michael Drayton (1563–1631), British poet. Idea (sonnet 1, l. 5–10). . .
