    Fair stood the wind for France,
    When we our sails advance,
    Nor now to prove our chance
    Longer will tarry;
    Michael Drayton (1563–1631)

    Since there’s no help, come let us kiss and part;
    Nay, I have done, you get no more of me,
    And I am glad, yea, glad with all my heart
    That thus so cleanly I myself can free;
    Shake hands for ever, cancel all our vows,
    And when we meet at any time again,
    Be it not seen in either of our brows
    That we one jot of former love retain.
    —Michael Drayton (1563–1631)
