The Silent Lover i

Sir Walter Raleigh.
1552–1618

PASSIONS are liken’d best to floods and streams:

The shallow murmur, but the deep are dumb;

So, when affection yields discourse, it seems

  The bottom is but shallow whence they come.

They that are rich in words, in words discover

That they are poor in that which makes a lover.
