When clouds are seen wise men put on their cloaks;
When great leaves fall then winter is at hand.

And out hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled read more

Funeral marches to the grave.

As Love and I late harbour'd in one inn,

"In love read more

As Love and I late harbour'd in one inn,
With proverbs thus each other entertain;
"In love there is no lack," thus I begin;
"Fair words make fools," replieth he again;
"Who spares to speak doth spare to speed," quoth I;
"As well," saith he, "too forward as too slow";
"Fortune assists the boldest," I reply;
"A hasty man," quote he, "ne'er wanted woe";
"Labour is light where love," quote I, "doth pay";
"Light burden's heavy, if far borne";
Quoth I, "The main lost, cast the by away";
"Y'have spun a fair thread," he replies in scorn.
And having thus awhile each other thwarted
Fools as we met, so fools again we parted.

Think nought a trifle, though it small appear;
Small sands the mountain, moments make the year,
And trifles life.
