A sick toss’d vessel

June 28, 2016


      Indeed at first Man was a treasure,
  A box of jewels, shop of rarities,
      A ring, whose posie was, My pleasure:
  He was a garden in a Paradise:
           Glorie and grace
         Did crown his heart and face.

      But sinne hath fool’d him. Now he is
  A lump of flesh, without a foot or wing
  To raise him to the glimpse of blisse:
  A sick toss’d vessel, dashing on each thing;
           Nay, his own shelf:
         My God, I mean myself.
