1610 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. George Hakewill

John Heath, "The Vanitie of the Eye. Ad M. Geo. Hakewill" Two Centuries of Epigrammes (1610) sig. E7v.



So rightly set you downe the vanities
Of those bewitching lights, I meane our eyes,
That I doe here confesse you make me doubt,
Whether 'twere best or no to doe them out.
For as we see a seel'd Dove mounts upright,
So would our thoughts free'd from the let of sight.
