#6 (“Is melancholy part of me to stay. . .”)

 

 

 

                        Is melancholy part of me to stay,

                        Or may times happy scare him to parts far?

                        I do not wish this snowy, tranquil day

                        To be turned raw ‘til night bring sky of star.

                        I must my work do all the day with speed

                        But pleasure possible doth seem to me.

                        What remedy plain may bring fast the deed

                        To turn myself toward brighter day to see?

                        I know:  Of Paul I’ll think and there will be

                        The pleasure of a moment’s rest to find.

                        ‘Tis not my will of work so full of me

                        That love’s sweet joy cannot lift mood in rhyme.

                                    ‘Tis best to balance joy with work, you’ll see

                                    A drudge so sad I would not make of me.
