Soe spight of enuie wee like twinns will liue like Venus d'oues wee will both tak & giue Occasion of delight, & if ere fate Crosse our delights, I will participate Your storms, & sunshines both the worst & best, Your pains my smart, your pleasures are my rest. 4 On a Sigh 1 Tell me thou God of wind In all thy Cauerns can'st thou find, A vapour, fume, a Gale or blast, Like to a sigh which loue doth cast. Can any whirlewind in thy vaulte, Plough vp earths breast, with such assault, Goe wind & blowe then where thou please, And leaue mee breathlesse to my ease. 2 If thou bee wind then O refraine. From shipwrack & my sailes maintaine, If thou bee wind then light thou art But O how heauie is my heart If thou bee wind then purge the way Let care that dogs thy force obey 3 Noe 'tis a wind that loues to blowe. Vpon my Saint where e're shee goe. And stealing through her fan it beares Soft errands to her lips & eares And then perhaps a passage makes Downe to her heart where breath she takes. 4 Theese blasts of seighing raised are, By th'influence influence of my bright starr.
