1I curst thee oft, I pittie now thy case,
4That thou must want or foode, or dwelling place.
5For she protests to banish thee her face,
6Her face? O Loue, a Rogue thou then shouldst be!
7If Loue learne not alone to loue and see,
8Without desire to feede of further grace.
10To such a schoole-mistresse, whose lessons new
11Thou needs must misse, and so thou needs must smart.
12Yet Deare, let me his pardon get of you,
14Till without fewell you can make hot fire.
