'Let my good name, that senseless reputation, (821)
For Collatine's dear love be kept unspotted: (822)
If that be made a theme for disputation, (823)
The branches of another root are rotted (824)
And undeserved reproach to him allotted
That is as clear from this attaint of mine (826)
As I, ere this, was pure to Collatine.
