Flie idlenesse

May 14, 2016

 


  Flie idlenesse, which yet thou canst not flie
  By dressing, mistressing, and complement.
  If those take up thy day, the sunne will crie
  Against thee; for his light was onely lent.
    God gave thy soul brave wings; put not those feathers
    Into a bed, to sleep out all ill weathers.
