The Passionate Pilgrim (Octavo, 1599)

And to her will frame all thy waies,
Spare not to spend, and chiefly there,
Where thy desart may merit praise,
By ringing in thy Ladies eare,
310 The strongest castle, tower and towne,
The golden bullet beats it downe.

Serue alwaies with assured trust,
And in thy sute be humble true,
Vnlesse thy Lady proue vniust,
315Prease neuer thou to chuse a new:
When time shall serue, be thou not slacke,
To proffer though she put thee back.
