Affliction then is ours

June 3, 2016

 


      Affliction then is ours;
  We are the trees, whom shaking fastens more,
  While blustring windes destroy the wanton bowres,
  And ruffle all their curious knots and store.
    My God, so temper joy and wo,
    That thy bright beams may tame thy bow.

"Affliction"
