I wish, said Mr. [Fulke] Greville, men would not pretend to write of what they cannot be masters of. Another country--it is imposs ...
Man, dreame no more of curious mysteries,
As what was here before the world was made,
when this life is from the body fled,
To see it selfe in that eternall Glasse,
Sweet Cupid's shafts, like destiny,
Doth causeless good or ill decree.
The worth that worthiness should move
Is love, that is the bow of Love.
In night when colours all to black are cast,
Distinction lost, or gone down with the light;
I bow'd not to thy image for succession,
Nor bound thy bow to shoot reformed kindness,
Three things there be in man's opinion dear,
Fame, many friends, and fortune's dignities:
And images of self-confusednesses
Which hurt imaginations only see--
Hard-hearted minds relent and rigor's tears abound,
And envy strangely rues his end, in whom no fault was found.
