First Line: Courtling, I rather thou shouldst utterly
Last Line: Would both thy folly, and thy spite betray.
Variant Title(s): To Censorious Courtling


Courtling, I rather thou shouldst utterly
Dispraise my work, than praise it frostily:
When I am read, thou feign'st a weak applause,
As if thou wert my friend, but lackd'st a cause.
This but thy judgement fools: the other way
Would both thy folly, and thy spite betray.
