POORE silly soul, whose hope and head lies low

July 13, 2016

 


  POORE silly soul, whose hope and head lies low;
  Whose flat delights on earth do creep and grow:
  To whom the starres shine not so faire, as eyes;
  Nor solid work, as false embroyderies;
  Hark and beware, lest what you now do measure,
  And write for sweet, prove a most sowre displeasure.

"Vanitie"
