ADIEU, fond love, farewell you wanton powers!
I am free again.
Thou dull disease of blood and idle hours,
Bewitching pain,
Fly to fools, that sigh away their time,
My nobler love to heaven doth climb,
And there behold beauty still young,
That time can ne'er corrupt, nor death destroy,
Immortal sweetness by fair angels sung,
And honoured by eternity and joy:
There lies my love, thither my hopes aspire,
Fond love declines, this heavenly love grows higher.
