Excerpt: When men shall find thy flower, thy glory pass, // And thou with carefull brow sitting alone, // Received hast this message from thy glass, // That tells thee truth, and says that all is gone, // Fresh shalt thou see in me the wounds thou madest; // Though spent thy flame, in me the heat remaining. // I that have lov'd thee thus before thou fadest, // My faith shall wax, when thou art in thy waning. // The world shall find this miracle in me, // That fire can burn, when all the matter's spent; // Then what my faith hath been thy self shalt see, // And that thou wast unkind thou mayst repent. // Thou mayst repent, that thou hast scorn'd my tears, // When Winter snows upon thy golden hairs. // XLII // When Winter snows upon thy golden hairs, // And frost of age hath nipt thy flowers near, // When dark shall seem thy day that never clears, // And all lies wither'd that was held so dear, // Then take this picture which I here present thee, // Limn'd with a pencil not all unworthy: // Here see the gifts that God and Nature lent thee; // Here read thy self, and what I suffer'd for thee. // This may remain thy lasting monument, // Which happily posterity may cherish; // These colors with thy fading are not spent; // These may remain, when thou and I shall perish. // If they remain, then thou shalt live thereby; // They will remain, and so thou canst not die. // XLIII // Thou canst not die whilst any zeal abound // In feeling hearts that can conceive these lines; // Though thou a Laura hast no Petrarch found, // In base attire, yet clearly Beauty shines.
