From this feflion interdict
To themselves yet either neither,
Beauty, truth and rarity,
Why should this desart be,
For it is unpeopled? No, Tongue I'll hang on every tree,
That shall civil sayings.show.
Some how brief the life of man
Runs his erring pilgrimage, That the stretching of a span
Buckles in his sum of age. Some of violated vows
'Twixt the souls of friend and friends, But upon the fairest boughs,
Or at every fentence' end Will I Rosalinda write;
Teaching all that read to know, The quintessence of every sprite,
Heaven would in little show.. Therefore heaven nature charg'a,
That one body should be filla With all graces wide enlarg'd ;
Nature presently diftill'd Helen's cheek, but not her heart,
Cleopatra's majesty ; Atalanta's better part,
Sad Lucretia's modesty.. Thus Rosalind of many parts,
By heavenly fynods was devis'd, Of many faces, eyes and hearts,
To have the touches deareft priz'di Heaven would these gifts she should have,
And I to live and die her flave.
