Poems from Fulke Greville


Everything changes thank God Myrna my love


I pitied Cupid and took him in but he left me for my love


“All’s dark unto the blind” Desire stands in its own shadow but love in herself is ever bright


Farewell Fortune of the Courts My saint is in the Woods


Last night I was in Eden; that is, I was with Caelica, but now I am forbidden, and Eden is proved by broken fence a common field


Caelica’s like an ear of wheat. Soon she’ll be ready to eat.


You hurt me when I’m near you But I hurt myself when I’m not
