Sonetto. 27 Daungers altered delayes in loue.

THe heart inthraul'd with loues •…ttractiue force,
(Whose hope doth martch with honours equipage,
When reason doth his true desertes remorse)
Must take his time his sorrowes to assuage:
For cheeries ripe will not so long endure,
But will in time, fade, wither, and decay,
That which this day, could finest witts allure;
To morrowe, CORIDON doth cast away,
The Iron being hot who list not for to strike,
Shall sure, being colde, neu'r forge it to his minde,
And all those partes, moueth loue to like;
Doe oft (in time) make loue to proue vnkinde.
Eu'n so in time daunger attends delaye,
For time and tide for no mans pleasures staye.
