Perir hanterium. .

THOU

[ocr errors]

HOU, whose sweet youth and early hopes enhance
Thy rate and price, and mark thee for a treasure;
Hearken unto a Verser, who may chance
Rhyme thee to good, and make a bait of pleasure :

A Verse may find him who a Sermon flies,

And turn delight into a sacrifice.
Beware of lust, it doth pollute and soul
Whom God in baptism wash'd with his own blood;
It blots the lesson written in thy soul:
The holy lines cannot be understood.

How dare those eyes upon a Bible look,
Much less towards God, whose luft is all their book ?
Wholly abstain, or wed. Thy bounteous Lord
Allows thee choice of paths : take no bye-ways,
But gladly welcome what he doth afford;
Not grudging that thy luft hath bounds and stays.

Continence hath his joy: weigh both, and so

If rottenness have more, let Heaven go.
If God had laid all.common, certainly
Man would have been th' encloser: but since now
God hath impal'd us, on the contrary
Man breaks the fence, and every ground will plow.

O what were man, might he himself misplace!
Sure to be cross, he would shift feet and face.

B

[ocr errors][merged small]

Drink not the third glass, which thou can't not tame,
When once it is within thee; but before,
May'st rule it, as thou lift; and pour the shame,
Which it would pour on thee, upon the floor.

It is most just to throw that on the ground,
Which would throw me there, if I keep the round.

He that is drunken, may his mother kill,
Big with his fifter: He hath lost the reins,
Is out-law'd by himself: All kind of ill
Did with his liquor slide into his veins.

The drunkard forfeits man, and doth devest

All worldly right, fave what he hath by beaft.
Shall I, to please another's wine-fprung mind,
Lose all mine own? God hath giv'n me a measure
Short of his Can and Body: must I find
A pain in that, wherein he finds a pleasure ?

Stay at the third glass : Ifthou lose thy hold,

Then thou art modest, and the wine grows bold, If reason move not gallants, quit the room; All in a shipwreck shift their several way: Let not a common ruin thee intomb : Be not a beast in courtesy; but stay,

Stay at the third cup, or forego the place,

Wine above all things doth God's stamp deface.
Yet, if thou sin in wine or wantonness,
Boast not thereof, nor make thy shame thy glory,
Frailty gets pardon by submiffivenefs.
But he that boasts, Thuts that out of his story:

He makes flat war with God, and doth defy,
With his poor clod of earth the spacious fky.
