Comments about Henry Constable
To The Blessed Sacrament
WHEN thee (O holy sacrificed Lambe)
In severed sygnes I whyte and liquide see,
As on thy body slayne I thynke on thee,
Which pale by sheddyng of thy bloode became.
And when agayne I doe behold the same
Vayled in whyte to be receav’d of mee,
Thou seemest in thy syndon wrapt to bee
Lyke to a corse, whose monument I am.
