H . Constable XVI ROSALINE Like to the clear in highest sphere Where all
imperial glory shines , Of selfsame colour is her hair Whether unfolded , or in
twines : Heigh ho , fair Rosaline ! Her eyes are sapphires set in snow ,
... minutes hasten to their end ; Each changing place with that which goes before ,
In sequent toil all forwards do contend . Nativity once in the main of light Crawls
to maturity , wherewith being crown ' d , Crooked eclipses ' gainst his glory fight ...
Crooked eclipses ' gainst his glory fight , And Time that gave , doth now his gift
confound . Time doth transfix the flourish set on youth , And delves the parallels
in beauty ' s brow ; Feeds on the rarities of nature ' s truth , And nothing stands but
... And Heaven ' s glory , whom this happy hour Doth lead unto your lovers '
blissful bower , Joy may you have , and gentle hearts content of your love ' s
complement ; And let fair Venus , that is queen of love , With her heart - quelling
son upon ...
... the bridal day , which is not long : Sweet Thames ! run softly , till I end my song .
Yet therein now doth lodge a noble peer , Great England ' s glory and the world '
s wide wonder , Whose dreadful name late thro ' all Spain did thunder Book.
