thou throwest me Into more sicknesses

April 15, 2016

 


  Yet left perchance I should too happie be
           In my unhappinesse,
  Turning my purge to food, thou throwest me
           Into more sicknesses.
  Thus doth thy power cross-bias me, not making
  Thine own gift good, yet me from my ways taking.
