'And wilt thou be the school where Lust shall learn? (618)

Must he in thee read lectures of such shame? (619)

Wilt thou be glass wherein it shall discern (620)

Authority for sin, warrant for blame, (621)

To privilege dishonour in thy name?
(622)
Thou back'st reproach against long-living laud, (623)

And makest fair reputation but a bawd.
