First Line: Yet such it is that I will not exchange
Last Line: Azile's virtue 'twas did me inflame.
Alternate Author Name(s): William Boxworth


Yet such it is that I will not exchange
My life with those whom Fortune kind entreats,
And since it is her arrow that doth range
My tender heart, I kiss the rod that beats.
I laugh at Cupid, who is overjoy'd
With fond conceit, that he hath wrought this fire:
But let him be with self-conceit destroy'd;
'Twas not his power, 'twas my own desire;
Though Venus' hoodwink'd son doth bear the name,
Azile's virtue 'twas did me inflame.
