Let those who are in favor with their stars Of public honor and proud titles boast, Whilst I, whom fortune of such triumph bars, Unlooked for joy in that I honor most. Great princes' favorites their fair leaves spread But as the marigold at the sun’s eye, And in themselves their pride lies burièd, For at a frown they in their glory die. The painful warrior famousèd for worth, After a thousand victories once foiled, Is from the book of honor razèd quite, And all the rest forgot for which he toiled. Then happy I that love and am belovèd Where I may not remove nor be removèd.
