TO THE DECEASED AUTHOR, UPON THE PROMISCUOUS PRINTING OF HIS POEMS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: When thy loose raptures, donne, shall meet with those
Last Line: That they would buy thy goodnesse, with thy crimes.
Subject(s): Donne, John (1572-1631); Poetry & Poets


When thy Loose raptures, Donne, shall meet with Those
That doe confine
Tuning, unto the Duller line,
And sing not, but in Sanctified Prose;
How will they, with sharper eyes,
The Fore-skinne of thy phansie circumcise?
And feare, thy wantonnesse should now, begin
Example, that hath ceased to be Sin?

And that Feare fannes their Heat; whilst knowing eyes
Will not admire
At this Strange Fire,
That here is mingled with thy Sacrifice:
But dare reade even thy Wanton Story,
As thy Confession, not thy Glory.
And will so envie Both to future times,
That they would buy thy Goodnesse, with thy Crimes.
