EnglandsHelicon N1r


If that they stay’d at (Faire) and had not passed to prying Iealousie: With plaints of such despaire (20) As moou’d the gentle ayre to teares: The Song that they did sing, should be One of the fayrest as euer I did see.
Mishap, and fortunes play, ill did they place in Beauties brest: (25) For since so much to say, There was of beauties sway, they had done well to leaue the rest. They had enough to doo, if in her praise their wits they did awake: (30) But yet so must they too, And all thy loue that woo, thee not too coy, nor too too proude to make, If that thou wilt a secret Louer take.
For if thou hadst but knowne (35) the beauty, that they heere doo touch, Thou woul’dst then loue alone Thy selfe, nor any one, onely thy selfe accounting much. But if thou doo’st conceaue (40) this beauty, that I will not publique make, And mean’st not to bereaue The world of it, but leaue the same to some (which neuer peere did take,) (Sweet life) doo not my secret loue forsake.
