Caelica 38: "Caelica, I overnight was finely used.." by Fulke Greville, Baron Brooke

by gsa123

Cælica, I overnight was finely used,

Lodged in the midst of paradise, your heart;

Kind thoughts had charge I might not be refused,

Of every fruit and flower I had part.

But curious knowledge, blown with busy flame,

The sweetest fruits had in down shadows hidden,

And for it found mine eyes had seen the same,

I from my paradise was straight forbidden.

Where that cur, rumor, runs in every place,

Barking with care, begotten out of fear;

And glassy honor, tender of disgrace,

Stand seraphim to see I come not there;

While that fine soil which all these joys did yield,

By broken fence is proved a common field.
