TO MY FRIEND, MASTER JOHN FORD; ON 'LOVE'S SACRIFICE', by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Unto this altar, rich with thy own spice
Last Line: To read this tragedy, and thy own be next.
Subject(s): Ford, John (1586-1639); Poetry & Poets


Unto this altar, rich with thy own spice,
I bring one grain to thy LOVE'S SACRIFICE;
And boast to see thy flames ascending, while
Perfumes enrich our air from thy sweet pile.
Look here, thou that hast malice to the stage,
And impudence enough for the whole age;
"Voluminously"-ignorant, be vext
To read this tragedy, and thy own be next.
