My heart to stone, and thine harder then flint,
Knocking together may strike fire, and set
Much more on fire, then hath bin burned yet
If so it hap, then let those flames calcine
My heart to Cinders, so it soften thine:
A heart, which untill then doth serve the turne
To enflame others, but it selfe not burne.
-Francis Kynaston "
