First Line: The sovereign beauty which I do admire
Last Line: The wonder that my wit cannot endite.
Alternate Author Name(s): Clout, Colin
Subject(s): Beauty

The soverayne beauty which I doo admyre,
Witnesse the world how worthy to be prayzed;
The light wherof hath kindled heavenly fyre
In my fraile spirit, by her from basenesse raysed:
That being now with her huge brightnesse dazed,
Base thing I can no more endure to view;
But looking still on her, I stand amazed
At wondrous sight of so celestiall hew.
So when my toung would speak her praises dew,
It stopped is with thoughts astonishment;
And when my pen would write her titles true,
It ravisht is with fancies wonderment.
Yet in my hart I then both speake and write
The wonder that my wit cannot endite.
