Or where his beames do not dissolue the yse : In temperate heate where he is felt and sene : In presence prest of people madde or wise. Set me in hye, or yet in lowe degree : In longest night, or in the shortest daye : In clearest skye, or where clowdes thickest be : In lusty youth, or when my heeres are graye.
