TH’expence of Spirit in a waſte of ſhame Is luſt in action, and till action, luſt Is periurd, murdrous, blouddy full of blame, Sauage, extreame, rude, cruell, not to truſt, Inioyed no ſooner but diſpiſed ſtraight, Paſt reaſon hunted, and no ſooner had Paſt reaſon hated as a ſwollowed bayt, On purpoſe layd to make the taker mad. Made In purſut and in poſſeſſion ſo, Had, hauing, and in queſt, to haue extreame, A bliſſe in proofe and proud and very wo, Before a ioy propoſd behind a dreame, All this the world well knowes yet none knowes well, To ſhun the heauen that leads men to this hell.
The expense of spirit in a waste of shame Is lust in action: and till action, lust Is perjured, murderous, bloody, full of blame, Savage, extreme, rude, cruel, not to trust; Enjoyed no sooner but despised straight; Past reason hunted; and no sooner had, Past reason hated, as a swallowed bait, On purpose laid to make the taker mad. Mad in pursuit and in possession so; Had, having, and in quest to have extreme; A bliss in proof, and proved, a very woe; Before, a joy proposed; behind a dream. All this the world well knows; yet none knows well To shun the heaven that leads men to this hell.
