Now thou wouldst taste our miserie

June 2, 2016

 

 


      At first we lived in pleasure;
  Thine own delights thou didst to us impart:
  When we grew wanton, thou didst use displeasure
  To make us thine: yet that we might not part,
    As we at first did board with thee,
    Now thou wouldst taste our miserie.

"Affliction"
The Temple
George Herbert, The Works of George Herbert (London: George Routledge & Co., 1854), 97.
