Amoretti: Sonnet 52

So oft as homeward I from her depart,
I go lyke one that, having lost the field,
Is prisoner led away with heavy hart,
Despoyld of warlike armes and knowen shield.
So doe I now my self a prisoner yield
To sorrow and to solitary paine,
From presence of my dearest deare exylde,
Long-while alone in languor to remaine.
There let no thought of ioy, or pleasure vaine,
Dare to approch, that may my solace breed;
Bet sudden* dumps**, and drery sad disdayne
Of all worlds gladnesse, more my torment feed.
So I her absens will my penaunce make,
That of her presens I my meed may take.

(* _Sudden_, Qu. sullen?)
(** _Dumps_, lamentations.)

But mercy doth with beautie best agree, As in

Doe I not see that fayrest ymagesOf hardest marble are of purpose made,For that they should endure through many ages,Ne let theyr famous moniments to fade?Why then doe I, untrainde in lovers trade,Her hardnes blame, which I should more commend?Sith never ought was excellent assaydeWhich was not hard t'atchive and bring to end;Ne ought so hard, but he that would attendMote soften it and to his will allure.So do I hope her stubborne hart to bend,And that it then more stedfast will endure: Only my paines wil be the more to get her; But, having her, my ioy wil
