Seite 286 - The conquest of your beauty It comes not from defect of love But from excess of duty. For knowing that I sue to serve A saint of such perfection, As all desire but none deserve A place in her affection, I rather choose to want relief Than venture the revealing ; When Glory recommends the grief Despair distrusts the healing.
Seite 268 - Now all our neighbours' chimneys smoke, And Christmas blocks are burning ; Their ovens they with baked meats choke, And all their spits are turning. Without the door let sorrow lie ; And if for cold it hap to die, We'll bury't in a Christmas pie, And evermore be merry.
Seite 185 - She's turned her richt and round about, And thrice she blew on a grass-green horn ; And she sware by the moon and the stars abopn, That she'd gar me rue the day I was born.
