Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey (Генри Говард, граф Сарри)


A Vow To Love Faithfully, Howsoever He Be Rewarded


SET me whereas the sun doth parch the green
Or where his beams do not dissolve the ice;
In temperate heat, where he is felt and seen;
In presence prest1 of people, mad, or wise;
Set me in high, or yet in low degree;
In longest night, or in the shortest day;
In clearest sky, or where clouds thickest be;
In lusty youth, or when my hairs are gray:
Set me in heaven, in earth, or else in hell,
In hill, or dale, or in the foaming flood;
Thrall, or at large, alive whereso I dwell,
Sick, or in health, in evil fame or good,
Her's will I be; and only with this thought
Content myself, although my chance be nought. 



Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey's other poems:

  2. An Answer In The Behalf Of A Woman
  3. Geue Place Ye Louers, Here Before
  4. Of The Death Of Sir T.W. The Elder
