William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 

                        BELIEVE me, noble lord,
I am a stranger here in Gloustershire.
These high wild hills and rough uneven ways
Draw out our miles, and make them wearisome,
And yet your fair discourse hath been as sugar,        5
Making the hard way sweet and délectable.
But, I bethink me, what a weary way
From Ravenspurg to Cotswold will be found
In Ross and Willoughby, wanting your company;
Which, I protest, hath very much beguiled        10
The tediousness and process of my travel.
