1 Sweete restraine these showers of kindnesse, From distrust proceeding, Nurse not wrong conceiued blindnesse, By too much sigh breeding. Loue by error seemes astray, But dies if once suspected, Women must beleeue when they, Most by men are neglected. 2 Some, forg'd flatteries onely venture, Yet returne true fauours, Iust affection like a Center, Once fixt neuer wauers : Easily as the day from night, May womens eyes discouer, If they frame their minds aright, From the false the true louer.
