Sweet Warrior (Sonnet 57 from Amoretti) by Edmund Spenser

Sweet warrior when shall I have peace with you?
High time it is, this war now ended were:
Which I no longer can endure to sue,
Ne your incessant battery more to bear:
So weak my powers, so sore my wounds appear,
That wonder is how I should live a jot,
Seeing my hart through launched everywhere
With thousand arrows, which your eyes have shot:
Yet shoot ye sharply still, and spare me not,
But glory think to make these cruel stours.
Ye cruel one, what glory can be got,
In slaying him that would live gladly yours?
Make peace therefore, and grant me timely grace.
That all my wounds will heal in little space.

  1. 584441 615849I cannot thank you fully for the blogposts on your internet page. I know you placed a great deal of time and effort into all of them and hope you know how considerably I appreciate it. I hope I will do precisely exactly the same for one more individual at some point. Palm Beach Condos 841622
