Lo! what it is to love. 8 Flee alway from the snare, Learn by me to beware Of such a train Which doubles pain, 12 And endless woe and care That doth retain; Which to refrain Flee alway from the snare. 16 To love and to be wise, To rage with good advice, Now thus, now then, Now off, now on, 20 Uncertain as the dice; There is no man At once that can To love and to be wise. 24 Such are the diverse throes, Such, that no man knows That hath not proved, And once have loved. 28 Such are the raging woes: Sooner reproved Than well removed, Such are the diverse throes. 32 Love is a fervent fire Kindled by hot desire; For a short pleasure, Long displeasure; 36 Repentance is the hire. A poor treasure, Without measure. Love is a fervent fire. 40 Lo! what it is to lov
