Alternate Author Name(s): Du Bellay, Joachim


My deare, take in good parte this fortune badde
since of the good, no man is alwayes sure
And att the worste this one thinge may the gladd
that in one staye Shee cannott longe endure
The skillfull pilate trustes nott calmed skies
hee sees fayre dayes with clowdes sone overcaste
And good ytt is that stormes sometymes doo ryse
therby to Joye when Jeobardyes are paste
False fortunes smyles, the wiseste eyes doo blynde
butt by her checks, the symple lerne skill
Her frowarde thawarts doo try the constant mynd
wheras her baites allure our harts to yll
By her disgrace wee trye our frind and foe
And which is more, our selves wee learne to know.
