(1593 - 1633)

Restore to God His due in tithe and time;
  A tithe purloin'd cankers the whole estate.
      - The Temple--The Church Porch (st. 65)
        [God : Repentance]

Shall I, to please another wine-sprung minde,
  Lose all mine own? God hath giv'n me a measure
    Short of His can and body; must I find
      A pain in that, wherein he finds a pleasure?
      - The Temple--The Church Porch (st. 7)
        [Intemperance]

Judge not the preacher; for he is thy judge:
  If thou mislike him, thou conceiv'st him not.
    God calleth preaching folly. Do not grudge
      To pick out treasures from an earthen pot.
        The worst speak something good. If all want sense,
          God takes a text, and preaches patience.
      - The Temple--The Church Porch (st. 72)
        [Preaching]

For all may have,
  If they dare to try, a glorious life, or grave.
      - The Temple--The Church-Porch [Ambition]

Sweet day, so cool, so calm, so bright,
  The bridal of the earth and sky,
    The dew shall weep thy fall to-night;
      For thou must die.
      - The Temple--Virtue [Day]

Sweet rose, whose hue, angry and brave,
  Bids the rash gazer wipe his eye,
    Thy root is even in the grave,
      And thou must die.
      - Vertue (st. 2) [Roses]
