'Let him have time to tear his curled hair, (982)

Let him have time against himself to rave, (983)

Let him have time of Time's help to despair, (984)

Let him have time to live a loathed slave, (985)

Let him have time a beggar's orts to crave,
And time to see one that by alms doth live (987)

Disdain to him disdained scraps to give.
