  • By penitence the Eternal’s wrath’s appeas’d:
  • Ay, Proteus, but that life is alter’d now; I have done penance for contemning Love; Whose high imperious thoughts have punish’d me With bitter fasts, with penitential groans, With nightly tears, and daily heart-sore sighs; For, in revenge of my contempt of love, Love hath chas’d sleep from my enthralled eyes And made them watchers of mine own heart’s sorrow.
