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

Let Rhymes No More Disgrace


MUSIC, some think, no music is

Unless she sing of clip and kiss

And bring to wanton tunes “Fie, fie!”

Or “Tih-ha tah-ha!” or “I’ll cry!”

But let such rhymes no more disgrace

Music sprung of heavenly race.
