In court to serve decked with fresh array,
Of sugar'd meats feeling the sweet repast,
The life in banquets, and sundry kinds of play
Amid the press of lordly looks to waste
Hath with it join'd oft times such bitter taste,
That who so joys such kinds of life to hold,
In prison joys, fetter'd with chains of gold.
