A life as barren to thy praise As is the dust

July 25, 2016

 


    Let me not languish then, and spend
    A life as barren to thy praise
  As is the dust, to which that life doth tend,
           But with delaies.

    All things are busie; only I
    Neither bring hony with the bees,
  Nor flowres to make that, nor the husbandrie
           To water these.

    I am no link of thy great chain,
    But all my companie is a weed.
  Lord, place me in thy consort; give one strain
           To my poore reed.
