NAY:; let the prouder pines of Ida feare
The sudden fires of heaven, and decline
Their yielding tops that dar'd the skies whilere :
And shake your sturdy trunks ye prouder pines,

Whose swelling grains are like begalld alone,
With the deep furrows of the thunder-stone.

Stand ye secure, ye safer shrubs below,
In humble dales, whom heav'ns do not despight;
Nor angry clouds conspire your overthrow,
Envying at your too disdainful height.

Let high attempts dread envy and ill tongues,
And cow'rdly shrinke for feare of causelesse wrongs.

So wont big oaks feare winding ivy weed:
So soaring eagles fear the neighbour sunne:
So golden* Mazor wont suspicion breed,
Of deadly hemlock's poisoned potion:

So adders shroud themselves in fairest leaves :
So fouler fate the fairer thing bereaves.
