Seite 212 - Thy gowns, thy shoes, thy beds of roses, Thy cap, thy kirtle, and thy posies Soon break, soon wither, soon forgotten,— In folly ripe, in reason rotten. Thy belt of straw and ivy buds, Thy coral clasps and amber studs, All these in me no means can move , To come to thee and be thy love.
Seite ix - New perfumed with flowers fresh growing, Astrophel with Stella sweet Did for mutual comfort meet; Both within themselves oppressed, But each in the other blessed. Him great harms had taught much care, Her fair neck a foul yoke bare; But her sight his cares did...

Seite 90 - Yet what is love? Good shepherd, sain. — It is a sunshine mixed with rain ; It is a tooth-ache, or like pain ; It is a game where none doth gain ; The lass saith no, and would full fain ; And this is love, as I hear sain. Yet, shepherd, what is love, I pray? — It is a yea...
Seite 90 - A thing that creeps, it cannot go, A prize that passeth to and fro, A thing for one, a thing for moe ; And he that proves shall find it so ; And, shepherd, this is love, I trow.
