ON him the unpetitioned heavens descend,

Who heaven on earth proposes not for end;

The perilous and celestial excess

Taking with peace, lacking with thankfulness.

Bliss in extrême befits thee not, until

Thou'rt not extrême in bliss; be equal stili:

Sweets to be granted think thyself unmeet

Till thou have learned to hold sweet not too sweet.

This thing not far is he from wise in art

Who teacheth; nor who doth, from wise in he art.
