That sings heavens praise with such an earthly tongue.
Note 1. From Loves Labours Lost, act iv. sc. 2. Line 1, How shall I swear to love: How shall love credit me? by what oath shall I gain loves belief? [back]
Note 2. Study his bias leaves: I suspect there should be a comma after bias, to read, Study his bias, leaves, etc. Leaves, here is a verb. [back]
Note 3. Pardon love this: The meaning plainly is: Celestial as thou art, O, pardon the wrong love does in singing heavens praise (that is thine) with such an earthly tongue. (Dyce.) Yet the modern editors alter the punctuation to pardon, love, this. (Furness.) [back]
