ROBERT SOUTHWELL
English poet and Jesuit martyr
(1561? - 1595)

Her eye in silence hath a speech which eye best understands.
      - [Eyes]

Lingering labors come to naught.
      - [Delay]

My mind to me an empire is.
      - [Mind]

Shun delays, they breed remorse;
  Take thy time, while time is lent thee;
    Creeping snail's have weakest force;
      Fly their fault, lest thou repent thee;
        Good is best when soonest wrought,
          Ling'ring labours come to naught.
            Hoist tip sail while gale doth last,
              Tide and wind stay no man's pleasure;
                Seek not time, when time is past,
                  Sober speed is wisdom's leisure,
                    After-wits are dearly bought,
                      Let thy fore-wit guide thy thought.
      - [Delay]

The saddest birds a season find to sing.
      - [Happiness]

I feel no care of coin;
  Well-doing is my wealth;
    My mind to me an empire is,
      While grace affordeth health.
      - Content and Rich (Look Home) [Mind]

Man's mind a mirror is of heavenly sights,
  A brief wherein all marvels summed lie,
    Of fairest forms and sweetest shapes the store,
      Most graceful all, yet thought may grace them more.
      - Content and Rich (Look Home) [Mind]

Time wears all his locks before,
  Take thou hold upon his forehead;
    When he flies he turns no more,
      And behind his scalp is naked.
        Works adjourn'd have many stays,
          Long demurs breed new delays.
      - Loss in Delay [Time]
