Nay, tempt me not to love again:
There was a time when love was sweet;
Dear Nea! had I known thee then,
Our souls had not been slow to meet!
But oh! this weary heart hath run
So many a time the rounds of pain,
Not even for thee, thou lovely one!
Would I endure such pangs again.
Sir Thomas More

O that I were yon spangled sphere!
Then every star should be an eye,
To wander o'er thy beauties here.
Sir Thomas More

A little wanton money, which burned out the bottom of his purse.
