017.WN1.0HE %XElegie
017.WN1.001 Marry and loue thy Flauia, for shee
017.WN1.002 Hath all things, wher by others beautious bee,
017.WN1.003 For though her Eyes bee small, her mouth is greate,
017.WN1.004 Though they be Iuory, yet her teeth are yeat
017.WN1.005 Though they bee dimme, yet shee is light enough
017.WN1.006 And though her harsh haires fall, her skin is rough:
017.WN1.007 What though her cheeks bee yellow, her haire is red,
017.WN1.008 Giue her thine and shee hath a Maydenhead.
017.WN1.009 Thes thinges are beauties elements, where these
017.WN1.010 Meete in one, and one mvst as perfect please
017.WN1.011 If redd, and white, and each good qualitie
017.WN1.012 Bee in thy Wench, nere aske wherein->>where#itt< doth lie!
017.WN1.013 In byinge things perfumd, wee aske if there
017.WN1.014 Bee mvske and Amber in it, but not where.
017.WN1.015 Though all her parts bee not in the vsuall place
017.WN1.016 Shee hath yet an Anagram of a good face;
017.WN1.017 If wee might put the letters but one waie
017.WN1.018 In that leane death of words, what could wee saie? [CW:when]
017.WN1.019 When by the Gamot, some mvsitians make [22]
017.WN1.020 A perfect songe, others will vndertake
017.WN1.021 By the same Gamot changd to equall itt,
017.WN1.022 Things simplie good cann never bee vnfitt
017.WN1.023 Shees faire as any, if all bee like her
017.WN1.024 And if none bee then shee is singuler.
017.WN1.025 All loue is wonder, if wee iustly doe
017.WN1.026 Account her wonderfull; why not louely too?
017.WN1.027 Loue built on beautie, soone as beautie dies,
017.WN1.028 Chuse this face, changd by no deformities.
017.WN1.029 Women are all like Angells: The faire bee,
017.WN1.030 Like those which fell to worse, but such as shee,
017.WN1.031 Like to good Angells, nothing cann impaire:
017.WN1.032 Tis lesse greife to bee foule then t'aue bin faire.
017.WN1.033 For one nights Reuells, silke and gould wee chuse,
017.WN1.034 But in longe iournyes, cloth and leather vse.
017.WN1.035 Beautie is barren oft: best hvsbands saie
017.WN1.036 There is best land where there is foulest waie
017.WN1.037 O what a Soueraine plaister will shee bee,
017.WN1.038 If thy past Sins haue taught the ielousie?
017.WN1.039 Heer needs no Spies, nor Eunuches: her committ
017.WN1.040 Safe to thy foes: yea to a Marmositt
017.WN1.041 When Belgias cities the rownd countrie drowne
017.WN1.042 That durtye foulnes guards, and armes the towne;
017.WN1.043 Soe doth her face guard her: And soe for thee,
017.WN1.044 Which forct by businesse absent oft mvst bee
017.WN1.045 Shee whose face like clouds, turnes the daie to night,
017.WN1.046 Who mightier then the Sea makes Moores seeme white.
017.WN1.047 Who though seven yeares shee in the Stewes had laid
017.WN1.048 A Nunnerie durst receaue, and thinke a Mayde. [CW:om]
017.WN1.049 And though in childbirths labour shee did lie; [23]
017.WN1.050 Midwiues would sweare, twere but a Timpanie
017.WN1.051 Whome if shee accuse her selfe, I creditt lesse,
017.WN1.052 Then Witches, which impossibles confesse.

017.WN1.055 One like non, and likt of none fittest were
017.WN1.056 For things in fashion every man will weare.|
