THou O too cruell guide of louers traine,
Proude in thy tyrannie on yeilded harts,
When shall thy thralls forget to mourne and plaine?
When wilt thou cease to hurle hatefull darts?

From out the mouth of euery fordon swayne,
That thou in steed of loue, breedst hellish paine,

In woes description to thy peeuish will,
Wilt thou in steed of loue, true louers kill,

No PARRY no, he doth but shew thee sorrow,
That from woes darknes, ioy more light may borro•….
