If I could write the beauty of your eyes And in fresh numbers number all your graces, The age to come would say, 'This poet lies; Such heavenly touches ne'er touch'd earthly faces. Men's evil manners live in brass; their virtues we write in water. To be a well-favoured man is the gift of fortune; but to write and read comes by nature. Suit the action to the word, the word to the action. The evil deeds are etched in brass. No matter where; of comfort no man speak: Let's talk of graves, of worms, and epitaphs; Make dust our paper and with rainy eyes Write sorrow on the bosom of the earth. Write till your ink be dry, and with your tears Moist it again, and frame some feeling line That may discover such integrity.
