Poem by Thomas Urquhart

Epigrams. The First Booke. є 37. A counsell to one oppressed with bondage, and cruell disasters

VVHats'ever be your fortune, let your deeds
With your affection alwayes jump; for by
Desiring to doe that, which you must needs:
You'l blunt the sharpnesse of necessity:
And making of constraint a willingnesse,
Be glad in spight of crosses, and distresse.
