  • 1From you haue I beene absent in the spring,
  • 2When proud pide Aprill (drest in all his trim)
  • 3Hath put a spirit of youth in euery thing:
  • 4That heauie Saturne laught and leapt with him.
  • 5Yet nor the laies of birds, nor the sweet smell
  • 6Of different flowers in odor and in hew,
  • 7Could make me any summers story tell:
  • 8Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew:
  • 9Nor did I wonder at the Lillies white,
  • 10Nor praise the deepe vermillion in the Rose,

  • G1v Link 12Drawne after you, you patterne of all those.
  • 13    Yet seem'd it Winter still, and you away,
  • 14    As with your shaddow I with these did play.
