No paynes comparable to his attempt. +
L Ike as the dolefull Doue, delightes alone to bee, And doth refuse the bloumed branche, chusing the leaflesse tree: whereon wailyng his chaunce, with bitter teares besprent, Doth with his bill, his tender breast, oft pearse and all to rent. (5) Whose greeuous groninges tho whose gripes of pinyng payne, whose gastly lookes, whose bloudy streames out flowing from ech vayne: Whose falling from the tree, whose panting on the grounde, Examples be of myne estate, tho there appeare no wounde.
