Taffeta phrases, silken terms precise,
Three-piled hyperboles, spruce affectation,
Figures pedantical—these summer flies
Have blown me full of maggot ostentation.
I do forswear them, and I here protest,
By this white glove (How white the hand, God knows!),
Henceforth my wooing mind shall be expressed
In russet yeas and honest kersey noes.
