Treasure Island

Francis Beaumont

(1584 – 6 March 1616 / Leicestershire)

True Beauty

May I find a woman fair,
And her mind as clear as air,
If her beauty go alone,
'Tis to me as if't were none.

May I find a woman rich,
And not of too high a pitch;
If that pride should cause disdain,
Tell me, lover, where's thy gain?

[Hata Bildir]
