lyrics

WHY IS MY VERSE SO BARREN OF NEW PRIDE,
SO FAR FROM VARIATION OR QUICK CHANGE?
WHY WITH THE TIME DO I NOT GLANCE ASIDE
TO NEW-FOUND METHODS, AND TO COMPOUNDS STRANGE?

WHY WRITE I STILL ALL ONE, EVER THE SAME,
AND KEEP INVENTION IN A NOTED WEED,
THAT EVERY WORD DOTH ALMOST TELL MY NAME,
SHOWING THEIR BIRTH AND WHERE THEY DID PROCEED?

O! KNOW SWEET LOVE I ALWAYS WRITE OF YOU,
AND YOU AND LOVE ARE STILL MY ARGUMENT;
SO ALL MY BEST IS DRESSING OLD WORDS NEW,
SPENDING AGAIN WHAT IS ALREADY SPENT;

FOR AS THE SUN IS DAILY NEW AND OLD,
SO IS MY LOVE STILL TELLING WHAT IS TOLD.
