Have

you

felt the wool of the beaver ?
Or swan's down, ever ?
Or have smelt o' the bud o' the brier ?

Or the nard i' the fire ?
Or have tasted the bag o’ the bee ?

O, so white! O, so soft! O, so sweet is she!

A VISION OF BEAUTY.

FROM "THE NEW INN."
It was a beauty that I saw,
So pure, so perfect, as the frame
Of all the universe was lame
To that one figure, could I draw,
Or give least line of it a law!

A skein of silk without a knot,
A fair march made without a halt,
A curious form without a fault,
A printed book without a blot,
All beauty, and without a spot !

LOVE THE SLAYER.

[ocr errors]

THE SAD SHEPHERD."
Though I am young and cannot tell
Either what Death or Love is well,
Yet I have heard they both bear darts,
And both do aim at human hearts;
And then again I have been told

FROM

1 This song was set to music by Nicholas Launeare, and inserted in the compilation of Ayres and Dialogues by Henry Lawes, 1553. – G.

Love wounds with heat, as Death with cold;
So that I fear they do but bring
Extremes to touch and mean one thing.

As in a ruin we it call
One thing to be blown up, or fall,
Or to our end like way may have
By flash of lightning or a wave:
So Love's inflamed shaft or brand
May kill as soon as Death's cold hand,
Except Love's fires the virtues have,
To fright the frost out of the grave.
