Who says that fictions only and false hair
Become a verse? Is there in truth no beauty?
Is all good structure in a winding stair?
Hearken unto a Verser, who may chance
Rhyme thee to good, and make a bait of pleasure.
A verse may find him, who a sermon flies,
And turn delight into a sacrifice.
A verse may finde him, who a sermon flies
And turns delight into a sacrifice
To write a verse or two is all the praise
That I can raise.
Quote of the day
