Henry King, Bishop of Chichester (Генри Кинг, епископ Чичестерский)


Sonnet. Tell me you stars that our affections move


Tell me you stars that our affections move,
Why made ye me that cruell one to love?
Why burnes my heart her scorned sacrifice,
Whose breast is hard as Chrystall, cold as Ice?
God of Desire! if all thy Votaries
Thou thus repay, succession will grow wise;
No sighs for incense at thy Shrine shall smoke,
Thy Rites will be despis'd, thy Altars broke.
O! or give her my flame to melt that snow
Which yet unthaw'd does on her bosome grow;
Or make me ice, and with her chrystall chaines
Binde up all love within my frozen veines.



Henry King, Bishop of Chichester's other poems:
  1. Psalm I
  2. To the Queen at Oxford
  3. The Short Wooing
  4. Sonnet. Go thou that vainly do'st mine eyes invite
  5. Upon A Table-Book Presented To A Lady
