'Then Love and Fortune be my gods, my guide! (352)

My will is back'd with resolution: (353)

Thoughts are but dreams till their effects be tried; (354)

The blackest sin is clear'd with absolution; (355)

Against love's fire fear's frost hath dissolution.
The eye of heaven is out, and misty night (357)

Covers the shame that follows sweet delight.'
