• “Here lies a she sun, and a he moon there;
    She gives the best light to his sphere;
    Or each is both, and all, and so
    They unto one another nothing owe;
    And yet they do, but are
    So just and rich in that coin which they pay,
    That neither would, nor needs forbear, nor stay;
    Neither desires to be spared nor to spare.
    They quickly pay their debt, and then
    Take no acquittances, but pay again;
    They pay, they give, they lend, and so let fall
    No such occasion to be liberal.
    More truth, more courage in these two do shine,
    Than all thy turtles have and sparrows, Valentine.”
