SONG TO A LADY NOT YET ENJOY'D BY HER HUSBAND, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Come, celia, fix thine eyes on mine
Last Line: Though the blind mole discern not day.


COME, Celia, fix thine eyes on mine,
And through those crystals our souls flitting
Shall a pure wreath of eye-beams twine,
Our loving hearts together knitting.
Let eaglets the bright sun survey,
Though the blind mole discern not day.

When clear Aurora leaves her mate,
The light of her grey eyes despising,
Yet all the world doth celebrate
With sacrifice her fair uprising.
Let eaglets the bright sun survey,
Though the blind mole discern not day.

A dragon kept the golden fruit,
Yet he those dainties never tasted;
As others pin'd in the pursuit,
So he himself with plenty wasted.
Let eaglets the bright sun survey,
Though the blind mole discern not day.
