Not a sweet dish, but thou dost call it sowre

June 30, 2016

 


      PEACE pratler, do not lowre:
  Not a fair look, but thou dost call it foul;
  Not a sweet dish, but thou dost call it sowre:
      Musick to thee doth howl.
    By listning to thy chatting fears
    I have both lost mine eyes and eares.

      Pratler, no more, I say,
  My thoughts must work, but like a noiselesse sphere.
  Harmonious peace must rock them all the day:
      No room for pratlers there.
    If thou persistest, I will tell thee,
    That I have physick to expell thee.
