1 Some glory in their birth, some in their skill,
2 Some in their wealth, some in their bodies' force,
3 Some in their garments, though new-fangled ill,
4 Some in their hawks and hounds, some in their horse;
5 And every humour hath his adjunct pleasure,
6 Wherein it finds a joy above the rest:
7 But these particulars are not my measure;
8 All these I better in one general best.
9 Thy love is better than high birth to me,
10 Richer than wealth, prouder than garments' cost,
11 Of more delight than hawks or horses be;
12 And having thee, of all men's pride I boast:
13 Wretched in this alone, that thou mayst take
14 All this away and me most wretched make.
