One like none, and lik't of none fittest weare [f. 26]
For thinges in fashion euerie Man will weare.
Elegie .5.|
Althoughe thy hand, and fayth, and good workes to*
Haue seal'd thy loue, wch nothing should vndoe.
Yea, thoughe thou fall back, that Apostacie
Confirme thy loue; yet much, much, I feare thee.
Weomen are like the Artes, forc'd vnto none,
Open to all Searchers, vnpriz'd if vnknowne.
If I haue caught a Byrd, and lett him flye,
Another Fowler vsing theis meanes, as I
May catche the same Byrd, and as these thinges bee
Weomen are made for Men, not him, nor Mee.
Foxes, and Goates; All beastes chaung when they please,
Shall weomen more hotte, wilie-wild then these
Bee bound to One Man? And did Nature them
Idelie make them apter to endure then Men?
They are our Clogges, and their owne; If a Man bee
Chay'nd to a Gallie, yet the Galley's free.
Who hath a Plough-land, castes all his Seed-corne there,
And yet allowes his Ground more Corne should beare.
Thoughe Danubie vnto* the Sea must flowe,
The Sea receives the Rheine,* Volga, and Po.
