  • …an hour before the worshipp’d sun Peer’d forth the golden window of the east, A troubled mind drave me to walk abroad; Where,—underneath the grove of sycamore That westward rooteth from the city’s side,— So early walking did I see your son: Towards him I made; but he was ware of me, And stole into the covert of the wood: I, measuring his affections by my own,— That most are busied when they’re most alone,— Pursu’d my humour, not pursuing his, And gladly shunn’d who gladly fled from me.
