TO HIS LOVED SON, NAT. FIELD, AND HIS WEATHER-COCK WOMAN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: To many forms, as well as many ways
Last Line: Wit, turned to everything, proves stay in all.
Subject(s): Field, Nathaniel (1587-1633)


To many forms, as well as many ways,
Thy active muse turns like thy acted woman:
In which dispraised inconstancy turns praise;
Th' addition being, and grace of Homer's seaman,
In this life's rough seas tossed, yet still the same:
So turns thy wit, inconstancy to stay,
And stay t' inconstancy. And as swift Fame
Grows as she goes, in Fame so thrive thy play,
And thus to standing turn thy woman's fall:
Wit, turned to everything, proves stay in all.
