A Booke of Ayres


XV. Fortune loue and time

      Fortune loue and time hath made me happy
      Happy I was by Fortune loue and time
      My happe at highest the gods began to vary
      And threw me down that causde me first to clime
      They proude their wings and tooke their flight in rage
      Fortune to fooles loue to youth time to age.
