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



LET not the sluggish sleep

Close up thy waking eye,

Until with judgment deep

Thy daily deeds thou try:

He that one sin in conscience keeps

When he to quiet goes,

More vent’rous is than he that sleeps

With twenty mortal foes.
