Zepheria
Canzon 6. My fate! O not my fault! hath me debarred
Anonymous
 
MY fate! O not my fault! hath me debarred
From forth thy favour’s sunny sanctuary,
Unto the dear applause of thy regard,
Witness the world! how I, my guest did marry!
  My tears, my sighs; all have I summed in thee!        5
Conceit the total! do not partialise!
And then accept of their infinity
As part of payment to exacting eyes!
  And yet thy Trophy to ennoble more,
My heart prepares anew to thesaurise        10
Sighs and love options such as it sent of yore,
Save number they! faith only these englories!
  Yet though I thus enwealthy thy exchequer;
  Seem it not strange, I live ZEPHERIA’s debtor!
