If he than his groom be better or worse.
He works, plots, fights, in rude affairs,
With squires, lords, kings, his craft compares,
Till late he learned, through doubt and fear,
Broad England harbored not his peer:
Obeying time, the last to own

Into the charmed snare she shuns;
And every man, in love or pride,
Of his fate is never wide.
