William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Restoration Verse.  1910.
 
He or She That Hopes to Gain
Anonymous
 
HE 1 or she that hopes to gain
Love’s best sweet without some pain,
Hopes in vain.
 
Cupid’s livery no one wears
But must put on hopes and fears,        5
Smiles and tears,
 
And, like to April weather,
Rain and shine both together,
Both or neither.
 
Note 1. From Mr. Bullen’s Speculum Amantis, 1889, where it is first printed from Hal. MS. 1917, fol. 86. [back]
