Description
Poetry

Excerpt
Excerpt: If Beauty thus be clouded with a frown, // That pity shines no comfort to my bliss, // And vapors of disdain so overfrown, // That my life's light thus wholy darken'd is, // Why should I more molest the world with cries, // The air with sighs, the earth below with tears? // Since I live hateful to those ruthless eyes, // Vexing with untun'd moan her dainty ears; // If I have lov'd her dearer than my breath, // My breath that calls the heav'ns to witness it, // And still must hold her dear till after death; // And if that all this cannot move a whit, // Yet let her say that she hath done me wrong, // To use me thus and know I lov'd so long. // XXII // Come Time, the anchor-hold of my desire, // My last resort whereto my hopes appeal, // Cause once the date of her disdain t'expire; // Make her the sentence of her wrath repeal. // Rob her fair Brow, break in on Beauty, steal // Power from those eyes, which pity cannot spare; // Deal with those dainty cheeks as she doth deal // With this poor heart consumed with despair; // This heart made now the prospective of care, // By loving her, the cruelst Fair that lives, // The cruelst Fair that sees I pine for her, // And never mercy to my merit gives. // Let her not still triumph over the prize // Of mine affections taken by her eyes. // XXIII // Time, cruel Time, come and subdue that brow // Which conquers all but thee, and thee, too, stays // As if she were exempt from scythe or bow, // From love or years unsubject to decays.
