Francis T. Palgrave, ed. (1824–1897). The Golden Treasury.  1875.
 
W. Shakespeare
 
LX. The World's Way
 
TIRED with all these, for restful death I cry— 
As, to behold desert a beggar born, 
And needy nothing trimm'd in jollity, 
And purest faith unhappily forsworn, 
  
And gilded honour shamefully misplaced,         5
And maiden virtue rudely strumpeted, 
And right perfection wrongfully disgraced, 
And strength by limping sway disabled, 
  
And art made tongue-tied by authority, 
And folly, doctor-like, controlling skill,  10
And simple truth miscall'd simplicity, 
And captive Good attending captain Ill:— 
  
—Tired with all these, from these would I be gone, 
Save that, to die, I leave my Love alone.
