For if with you God angry be,
from his vengeance nought can shroud.
Make vse of what you haue practis1 d well, and not in vitious meanes,
If in rare gifts you do excell, yet trust not Vitious Queanes.
22 For lust doth fully fill their Vaynes,
and apt they be to intise: O therefore shunne their company,
like good men still be wise. Example truely take of me,
all Vitious courses shunne: For onely by bad company,
poore Spenser is vndone.
by Iohn Spenser. Imprinted at London for I. Trundle.
