William Stanley Braithwaite, ed. The Book of Elizabethan Verse. 1907.

Willing Bondage


HER hair the net of golden wire,

Wherein my heart, led by my wandering eyes

So fast entangled is that in no wise

It can, nor will, again retire;

But rather will in that sweet bondage die

Than break one hair to gain her liberty.
