Why Love is blind
OF purpose Love chose first for to be blind,
For, he with sight of that, that I behold,
Vanquish’d had been, against all godly kind:
His bow your hand, and truss should have unfold;
And he with me to serve had been assign’d:        5
But, for he blind, and reckless would him hold,
  And still by chance his deadly strokes bestow;
  With such as see, I serve, and suffer woe.
