To such as say, Thy Loue I ouer-prize,
And doe not sticke to terme my Prayses folly;
Against these Folkes, that thinke themselues so wise,
I thus oppose my Reasons forces wholly;
Though I giue more then well affords my state,
In which expense, the most suppose me vaine,
Which yeelds them nothing, at the easiest rate,
Yet at this price returnes me treble gaine.
They value not, vnskilfull how to vse,
And I giue much, because I gaine thereby:
I that thus take, or they that thus refuse,
Whether are these deceiued then, or I?
In eu’ry thing I hold this Maxim still,
The Circumstance doth make it good, or ill.
