      Ah where|fore with | infec|tion should | he live,
            ,          ,         ,        ,   ,
      And with | his pres|ence grace | impi|ety,
            ,        ,       ,          ,         ,
      That sin | by him | advan|tage should | achieve,
            ,        ,          ,       ,   ,
      And lace | itself | with his | soci|ety?
       T     T     T       ,         ,    ,         ___
      Why should false | painting | imit|ate his | cheek,
            ,       ,    ,                ,       ,
      And steal | dead seem/ing of | his liv|ing hue?
       T     T     T      ,       ,     ,       __
      Why should poor | beauty | indi|rectly | seek
       ,          ,         ,           ,         ,
      Roses | of sha|dow, since | his rose | is true?
       ,        2       T    T   T        ,        ,
      Why should he | live, now Na|ture bank|rupt^is,
       ,              ,          ,                ,       ,
      Beggared | of blood | to blush | through* live|ly veins?
           ,          ,      ,        ,         ,
      For she | hath^no | exche|quer now | but his,
            ,         ,       ,       ,          ,
      And proud | of ma|ny, lives | upon | his gains?
         ,           ,          ,            ,          ,
      O him | she stores,| to show | what wealth | she had
       .   T    T    T         ,            ,        ,
      In days long since,| before | these last | so bad.
