George Peele. (1558?–1597?)
 
 
1
    His golden locks time hath to silver turned;
  O time too swift! O swiftness never ceasing!
His youth ’gainst time and age hath ever spurned,
  But spurned in vain; youth waneth by encreasing.
          Sonnet. Polyhymnia.
2
    His helmet now shall make a hive for bees,
  And lovers’ songs be turned to holy psalms;
A man-at-arms must now serve on his knees,
  And feed on prayers, which are old age’s alms.
          Sonnet. Polyhymnia.
3
    My merry, merry, merry roundelay
  Concludes with Cupid’s curse:
They that do change old love for new,
  Pray gods, they change for worse!
          Cupid’s Curse.
