017.MC1.001 Marrye & loue thy Flavia; for she
017.MC1.002 Hath all thinges where w%5th%6 others beautious be,
017.MC1.003 For though her eyes be small, her mouth is greate,
017.MC1.004 Though they be snowye, yet her teeth ar ieatt,
017.MC1.005 Though they be dimme, yet she is light inough,
017.MC1.006 And though her harsh hayre fall, %Yyet#she%Z->>her#skin< is rough.
017.MC1.007 What though her cheekes be yellow, her haire is redd
017.MC1.008 Giue her thine, she hath a maiden-heade.
017.MC1.009 These thinges ar beauties elimentes, where these
017.MC1.010 Meete in one, that one must as perfit please,
017.MC1.011 If white & red & each good quality
017.MC1.012 be in thy wench, nere aske where it doth ly
017.MC1.013om

017.MC1.015 Though all her partes be not in the used place
017.MC1.016 She hath yet an anagram of a good face,
017.MC1.017 If we might put y%5e%6 letters but one way
017.MC1.018 in y%5t%6 leane dearth of wordes what coulde we say,
017.MC1.019 When by y%5e%6 gammot, the musitians make
017.MC1.020 A perfit songe, others will vndertake
017.MC1.021 By y%5e%6 same gammot changed, to equall it.
017.MC1.022 Thinges simply good can neuer be vnfit
017.MC1.023 She is as faire as any, if all be like her,
017.MC1.024 And if none be, then is she singular.
017.MC1.025 All loue is wonder %Yis wonder%Z: if we iustly doe [p.96; f.61v
017.MC1.026 accompt her wonderfull, why not loue her toe.
017.MC1.027 Loue built on beauty, sone as beauty dies,
017.MC1.028 Chuse this face changde by no deformities.
017.MC1.029 Women ar all like angels, the good be
017.MC1.030 Like those y%5t%6 fell to worse; but such as she
017.MC1.031 Like to good Angels, nothing can impaire,
017.MC1.032 Tis lesse greife to be foule, then to haue bin faire.
017.MC1.033 For one nightes reuels silke & gould we chuse,
017.MC1.034 But in longe iourneis cloth & lether vse.
017.MC1.035 Beauty is barren oft; best husbands say
017.MC1.036 Ther is best land. wher ther is foulest way.
017.MC1.037 O what a soueraine plaister will she be
017.MC1.038 If thy past sinnes haue taught y%5e%6 iealousy
017.MC1.039 Here neede no spies, no %1eunuckes%2; her com%Mit
017.MC1.040 safe to thy foes; yea to a marmosit.
017.MC1.041 When %1Belgias%2 citties the rounde countries droune
017.MC1.042 That durty foulenes gardes & armes y%5e%6 towne.
017.MC1.043 So doth her face guarde her; & so for the
017.MC1.044 Which force'd by busines oft must absent be.
017.MC1.045 She whose face turnes (like cloudes) y%5e%6 day to night, [p.97; f.62
017.MC1.046 Who (mightier then y%5e%6 Sun) makes %1Moores%2 seeme white
017.MC1.047 Whome though seauen yeeres she in y%5e%6 stwes->>>st%5e%6wes<< had laide,
017.MC1.048 A nunnery durst sweare she were a maide,
017.MC1.049 And though in childbed labour she did lye,
017.MC1.050 Midwiues woulde sweare twere but a timpany,
017.MC1.051 Whome, if she accuse her selfe, I credit lesse
017.MC1.052 Then witches, w%5ch%6 impossibles confesse.
017.MC1.053 %YWhome dildoes, bedstaues, & y%5e%6 veluet glasse%Z
017.MC1.054 %YWoulde be as loath to touch as >%VIoseph< was%Z
017.MC1.055 One like none, nor likt of none fittest were
017.MC1.056 For thinges in fashion euery man will weare.
