Commands in The Canonization

001 FOR God's sake hold your tongue,
002 let me love;
003 Or chide my palsy, or my gout;
My five gray hairs, or ruin'd fortune flout;
004 Take you a course,
005 get you a place,
006 Observe his Honour, or his Grace;
Or the king's real, or his stamp'd face
007 Contemplate; what you will,
008 approve,
009 Call's what you will,
010 Call her one, me another fly,
011 thus invoke us, "You, whom reverend love
Made one another's hermitage;
You, to whom love was peace, that now is rage;
Who did the whole world's soul contract, and drove
Into the glasses of your eyes;
So made such mirrors, and such spies,
That they did all to you epitomize—
Countries, towns, courts beg from above
A pattern of your love."

001 Saucy pedantic wretch, go chide
Late school-boys and sour prentices,
002 Go tell court-huntsmen that the king will ride,
003 Call country ants to harvest offices;
004 Look,
005 tell me,
Whether both th' Indias of spice and mine
Be where thou left'st them, or lie here with me.
006 Ask for those kings whom thou saw'st yesterday,
007 Shine here to us,

Commands in The Flea

001 MARK but this flea,
002 mark in this,
How little that which thou deniest me is;
It suck'd me first, and now sucks thee,
And in this flea our two bloods mingled be.
003 O stay, three lives in one flea spare,
Where we almost, yea, more than married are.
004 Let not to that self-murder added be,
And sacrilege, three sins in killing three.
