  • Nine changes of the watery star hath been The shepherd’s note since we have left our throne Without a burden: time as long again Would be fill’d up, my brother, with our thanks; And yet we should, for perpetuity, Go hence in debt: and therefore, like a cipher, Yet standing in rich place, I multiply With one we-thank-you many thousands more That go before it.
