Sinetes passions vppon his fortunes offered for an incense at the shrine of the ladies which guided his distempered thoughtes. The patrons patheticall posies, sonets, maddrigals, and rowndelayes. Together with Sinetes dompe. By Robert Parry Gent.
Parry, Robert, fl. 1540-1612.
I Loue, iust loue, not luste, thus constant liue I:
My •…yfes deere loue mislikes me,
Yet her sweete fayre doth like me:
Yf loue dislikes; to like and loue why should I?
Yf she be coy why should her loue be trustie?
Yf she be slowe; why should I be so hastie?
Yet loyall hart hath vow'd it,
And constant truth performes it:
Fayre; to thy beauties fayre, firme haue I vowed,
Sound is the seede that my resolue hath sowed:
But weede is the fruite that my fate hath mowed.
Yet luste I banish, louing
True zeale, I liue, yet still dying:
Thus still to be constant eu're haue I plodded.
