    That thou art blamed shall not be thy defect,
    For slander's mark was ever yet the fair;
    The ornament of beauty is suspect,
    A crow that flies in heaven's sweetest air.
    So thou be good, slander doth but approve
    Thy worth the greater, being wooed of time;
    For canker vice the sweetest buds doth love,
    And thou present'st a pure unstained prime.
