TO such as say thy love I overprize,
And do not stick to term my praises folly,
Against these folks, that think themselves so wise,
I thus oppose my reason's forces wholly,
Though I give more than well affords my state,
In which expense the most suppose me vain ;
Which yields them nothing at the easiest rate,
Yet at this price returns me treble gain.
They value not, unskillful how to use,
And I give much, because I gain thereby ;
I that thus take, or they that thus refuse,
Whether are these deceived then or I ?
In everything I hold this maxim still,
The circumstance doth make it good or ill.
