Hope
George Herbert

 
I Gave to Hope a watch of mine: but he
             An anchor gave to me.
Then an old prayer-book I did present:
             And he an optick sent.
With that I have a viall full of tears:
             But he a few green eares.
Ah Loyterer! I’le no more, no more I’le bring:
             I did expect a ring.
