- Love is a sickness full of woes,
- All remedies refusing:
- A plant that with most cutting grows,
- Most barren with best using.
SAMUEL DANIEL, Hymen's Triumph
- Pity is sworn servant unto love:
- And this be sure, wherever it begin
- To make the way, it lets your master in.
SAMUEL DANIEL, The Queen's Arcadia
- Care-charmer Sleep, son of the sable Night,
- Brother to Death, in silent darkness born:
- Relieve my languish, and restore the light,
- With dark forgetting of my care return.
SAMUEL DANIEL, Sonnets to Delia
