Ayton, Robert: To veiw thy beauty well, if thou be wise
Sir Robert Ayton
1569 - 1638

To veiw thy beauty well, if thou be wise,
Come not to gaze upon this glass of thyne
But come and looke upon these eyes of myne,
Where thou shalt see thy true resemblance twyce,
Or if thou thinkes that thou profaines thy eyes
When on my wretched eyes they daigne to shyne,
Looke on my heart wherein, as in a shryne,
The lively picture of thy beauty lyes,
Or if thy harmeless modesty thinkes shame
To gaze upon the horrous of my heart,
Come read those lynes and reading see in them
The trophies of thy beautie and my smart,
Or if to none of those thou'l daigne to come,
Weepe eyes, breake heart and you my verse be dumbe.
