YOUNG ADAM CUPID, HE THAT SHOT SO TRIM WHEN KING COPHETUA LOV’D THE BEGGARMAID.

MY ONLY LOVE SPRUNG FROM MY ONLY HATE!

TOO EARLY SEEN UNKNOWN, AND KNOWN TOO LATE!

YOU SPOTTED SNAKES WITH DOUBLE TONGUE,

THORNY HEDGE-HOGS, BE NOT SEEN;

NEWTS, AND BLIND-WORMS, DO NO WRONG;

COME NOT NEAR OUR FAIRY QUEEN.


THESE ARE THE FORGERIES OF JEALOUSY.

SINCE ONCE I SAT UPON A PROMONTORY,

AND HEARD A MERMAID ON A DOLPHIN’S BACK

UTTERING SUCH DULCET AND HARMONIOUS BREATH,

THAT THE RUDE SEA GREW CIVIL AT HER SONG,

AND CERTAIN STARS SHOT MADLY FROM THEIR SPHERES

TO HEAR THE SEA-MAID’S MUSIC.


I MUST GO SEEK SOME DEW DROPS HERE, AND HANG A PEARL IN EVERY COWSLIP’S EAR.

OVER HILL, OVER DALE,

THOROUGH BUSH, THOROUGH BRIER,

OVER PARK, OVER PALE,

THOROUGH FLOOD, THOROUGH FIRE.


THIS IS ERCLES’ VEIN, A TYRANT’S VEIN.

I’LL SPEAK IN A MONSTROUS LITTLE VOICE.
