William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
Risposta
Anonymous
 
THERE is a jewel which no Indian mines
Can buy, no chymic art can counterfeit;
It makes men rich in greatest poverty;
Makes water wine, turns wooden cups to gold,
The homely whistle to sweet music’s strain:        5
  Seldom it comes, to few from heaven sent,
  That much in little, all in naught,—Content.
