First Line: Sweet, be not proud of those two eyes
Last Line: When all your world of beauty's gone.
Subject(s): Admiration; Pride; Self-esteem; Self-respect


SWEET, be not proud of those two eyes,
Which starlike sparkle in their skies;
Nor be you proud that you can see
All hearts your captives, yours yet free.
Be you not proud of that rich hair,
Which wantons with the lovesick air;
Whenas that ruby which you wear,
Sunk from the tip of your soft ear,
Will last to be a precious stone
When all your world of beauty's gone.
