Thomas Carew
Ask me no more, where those stars light,
That downwards fall in dead of night;
For in your eyes they sit, and there
Fixed become, as in their sphere.
Carew quotes
Stand still, you floods, do not deface
That image which you bear:
So votaries, from every place,
To you shall altars rear.
He that loves a rosy cheek,
Or a coral lip admires,
Or from star-like eyes doth seek
Fuel to maintain his fires,
As old Time makes these decay,
So his flames must waste away.

Carew Thomas quotes
Then fly betimes, for only they
Conquer Love that run away.
Carew Thomas
The magic of a face.
Thomas Carew quotes
Ask me no more, whither do stray
The golden atoms of the day;
For, in pure love, Heaven did prepare
Those, powders to enrich your hair.
Thomas Carew
Ask me no more, if cast or west,
The phenix builds her spicy nest;
For unto you at last she flies,
And in your fragrant bosom dies.
Carew Thomas quotes
An untimely grave.
Ask me no more where Jove bestows,
When June is past, the fading rose;
For in your beauties, orient deep
These flow'rs, as in their causes, steep.
