1
      Love must kiss that mortal’s eyes
Who hopes to see fair Arcady.
No gold can buy you entrance there;
But beggared Love may go all bare—
No wisdom won with weariness;
But Love goes in with Folly’s dress—
No fame that wit could ever win;
But only Love may lead Love in.
          The Way to Arcady. 1 
2
    Ah woe is me, through all my days
  Wisdom and wealth I both have got,
And fame and name and great men’s praise;
  But Love, ah! Love I have it not.
          The Way to Arcady.
