'Why work'st thou mischief in thy pilgrimage, (961)

Unless thou couldst return to make amends? (962)

One poor retiring minute in an age (963)

Would purchase thee a thousand thousand friends, (964)

Lending him wit that to bad debtors lends:
O, this dread night, wouldst thou one hour come back, (966)

I could prevent this storm and shun thy wrack!
