Now, my co-mates and brothers in exile,
Hath not old custom made this life more sweet
Than that of painted pomp? Are not these woods
More free from peril than the envious court?
Here feel we but the penalty of Adam,
The seasons’difference,as the icy fang
And churlish chiding of the winter’s wind,
Which, when it bites and blows upon my body,
Even till I shrink with cold, I smile, and say,
“This is no flattery; these are counsellors
That feelingly persuade me what I am.”
Sweet are the uses of adversity,
Which, like the toad ,ugly and venomous ,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head:
Finds tongues n trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything:
I would not change it.
