I was full near my fall and hardly scaped,
Through fond desire that headlong me transported,
And with darts, and with nets I sported
That Love himself for me devised and shaped.

And if my reason but a while had stayed,
To rule my sense misled and unadvised
To my mishap I had no doubt assayed,
What a death is to live by love surprised.
