Amoretti: Sonnet 5

Rudely thou wrongest my deare harts desire,
In finding fault with her too portly pride:
The thing which I doo most in her admire,
Is of the world unworthy most envide.
For in those lofty lookes is close implide
Scorn of base things, and sdeigne of foul dishonor;
Thretning rash eies which gaze on her so wide,
That loosely they ne dare to looke upon her.
Such pride is praise, such portlinesse is honor,
That boldned innocence beares in hir eies,
And her faire countenaunce, like a goodly banner,
Spreds in defiaunce of all enemies.
Was never in this world ought worthy tride*,
Without some spark of such self-pleasing pride.


(* _Tride_, found.)

New yeare, forth looking out of Ianus gate,Doth seeme to promise hope of new delight,And, bidding th'old adieu, his passed dateBids all old thoughts to die in dumpish* spright;And calling forth out of sad Winters nightFresh Love, that long hath slept in cheerlesse bower,Wils him awake, and soone about him dightHis wanton wings and darts of deadly power.For lusty Spring now in his timely howreIs ready to come forth, him to receive;And warns the Earth with divers colord flowreTo decke hir selfe, and her faire mantle weave. Then you, faire flowre! in whom fresh youth doth raine, Prepare your
