Lover
WEEP not, nor backward turn your beams,
Fond eyes! Sad sighs, lock in your breath,
Lest on this wind, or in those streams,
My griev'd soul fly or sail to death.
Fortune destroys me if I stay,
Love kills me if I go away:
Since Love and Fortune both are blind,
Come, Reason, and resolve my doubtful mind.
Reason
Fly! and blind Fortune be thy guide,
And 'gainst the blinder god rebel.
Thy lovesick heart shall not reside
Where scorn and self-will'd error dwell;
Where entrance unto Truth is barr'd,
Where Love and Faith find no reward:
For my just hand may sometime move
The wheel of Fortune, not the sphere of Love.
