017.00E.0HE %XE%9leg%0. II. /%X%1The Anagram%2.
017.00E.001 M%+Arry, and love thy %1Flavia%2, for, she
017.00E.002 Hath all things, whereby others beauteous be;
017.00E.003 For, though her eyes be small, her mouth is great,
017.00E.004 Though they be Ivory, yet her teeth be jeat,
017.00E.005 Though they be dimme, yet shee is light enough,
017.00E.006 And though her harsh haire fall, her skin is tough;
017.00E.007 What though her cheeks be yellow, her hair's red,
017.00E.008 Give her thine, and she hath a Maidenhead.
017.00E.009 These things are beauties elements, where these
017.00E.010 Meet in one, that one must, as perfect, please.
017.00E.011 If red and white, and each good qualitie
017.00E.012 Be in thy wench, ne'r aske where it doth lie.
017.00E.013 In buying things perfum'd, we aske, if there
017.00E.014 Be muske and amber in it, but not, where. [CW: Though]
017.00E.015 Though all her parts be not in th'usuall place,
017.00E.016 She hath yet an Anagram of a good face.
017.00E.017 If we might put the letters but one way,
017.00E.018 In that leane dearth of words what could we say?
017.00E.019 When by the Gamut some Musitians make
017.00E.020 A perfect song, others will undertake,
017.00E.021 By the same Gamut chang'd, to equall it.
017.00E.022 Things simply good, can never be unfit;
017.00E.023 Shee's faire as any, if all be like her,
017.00E.024 And if none be, then she is singular.
017.00E.025 All love is wonder; if we justly doe
017.00E.026 Account her wonderfull, why not lovely too?
017.00E.027 Love built on beauty, soone as beauty, dies,
017.00E.028 Chuse this face, chang'd by no deformities.
017.00E.029 Women are all like Angels; the faire be
017.00E.030 Like those which fell to worse: but such as she,
017.00E.031 Like to good Angels nothing can impaire:
017.00E.032 'Tis lesse griefe to be foule, then to have been faire.
017.00E.033 For one nights revels, silk and gold we chuse,
017.00E.034 But, in long journeys, cloth, and leather use.
017.00E.035 Beauty is barren oft; best husbands say
017.00E.036 There is best land, where there is foulest way.
017.00E.037 Oh what a soveraigne plaister will she be,
017.00E.038 If thy past sinnes have taught thee jealousie!
017.00E.039 Here needs no spies, nor eunuchs her commit
017.00E.040 Safe to thy foes, yea, to a Marmosit.
017.00E.041 When Belgiaes Cities the round countreys drown,
017.00E.042 That durty foulnesse guards and armes the town:
017.00E.043 So doth her face guard her; and so, for thee,
017.00E.044 Which forc'd by businesse, absent oft must be,
017.00E.045 She, whose face, like clouds, turnes the day to night,
017.00E.046 Who, mightier tha%M the sea, makes Moors seem white; [CW: Who]
017.00E.047 Who, though seven years, she in the Stews had laid,
017.00E.048 A Nunnery durst receive, and thinke a Maid,
017.00E.049 And though in childbeds labour she did lie,
017.00E.050 Midwifes would sweare, 'twere but a tympanie,
017.00E.051 Whom, if she accuse her selfe, I credit lesse
017.00E.052 Than witches, which impossibles confesse.
017.00E.053om
017.00E.054om
017.00E.055 One like none, and lik'd of none, fittest were,
017.00E.056 For, things in fashion every man will weare.
