Fondly, too curious Nature, to adorn

Aurora with the blushes of the morn:

Why do her rosy lips breath gums and spice;

Unto the East, and sweet to Paradise?

Why do her eyes open the day? her hand

And voice intrance the panther, and command

Incensed winds; her breasts, the tents of love,

Smooth as the godded swan, or Venus' dove;

Soft as the balmy dew whose every touch

Is pregnant; but why those rich spoils, when such

Wonder and perfection must be led

A bridal captive unto Tithon's bed?

Ag'd, and deformed Tithon! must thy twine

Circle and blast at once what care and time

Had made for wonder? must pure beauty have

No other foil but ruin and a grave?

So have I seen the pride of Nature's store,

The orient pearl chained to the sooty Moor;

So hath the diamond's bright ray been set

In night, and wedded to the negro jet.

See, see, how thick those showers of pearl do fall

To weep her ransom, or her funeral,

Whose every treasured drop, congealed, might bring,

Freedom and ransom to a fettered kin,

While tyrant Wealth stands by, and laughs to see

How he can wed love and antipathy.

Hymen, thy pine burns with adulterate fire;

Thou and thy quivered boy did once conspire

To mingle equal flames, and then no shine

Of gold, but beauty, dressed the Paphian shrine;

Roses and lilies kiss'd; the amorous vine

Did with the fair and straight-limb'd elm entwine.
