12 A CONSOLATION When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes I all alone
beweep my outcast state , And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries , And
look upon myself , and curse my fate ; Wishing me like to one more rich in hope ,
So all their praises are but prophecies Of this our time , all you prefiguring ; 10
And , for they look'd but with divining eyes , They had not skill enough your worth
to sing : For we , which now behold these present days , Have eyes to wonder ,
... ever - fixéd mark 5 That looks on tempests , and is never shaken ; It is the star
to every wandering bark , Whose worth's unknown , although his height be taken
. Love's not Time's fool , though rosy lips and cheeks EARL OF STERLINE 15.
Were you the earth , dear Love , and I the skies , My love should shine on you like
to the sun , 10 And look upon you with ten thousand eyes Till heaven wax'd blind
, and till the world were done . Whereso'er I am , below , or else above you ...
When all aloud the wind doth blow , 10 And coughing drowns the parson's saw ,
And birds sit brooding in the snow , And Marian's nose looks red and raw ; When
roasted crabs hiss in the bowlThen nightly sings the staring owl 15 Tuwhoo !
