THE WORLD that cannot deem of worthy things, When I do praise her, say I do but flatter: So does the cuckoo, when the mavis sings, Begin his witless note apace to clatter. But they that skill not of so heavenly matter, 5: All that they know not envy or admire; Rather than envy, let them wonder at her, But not to deem of her desert aspire.
