From these high hills as when a spring doth fall,
It trilleth down with still and subtle course;
Of this and that it gathers aye, and shall,
Till it have just off flowed the stream and forse,
Then at the foot it rageth over all:
So fareth love when he hath ta'en a source;
His rein is rage, resistance vaileth none;
The first estew is remedy alone.
