Whoso List to Hunt

by
 Whoso list to hunt, I know where is an hind, 
But as for me, helas! I may no more.
The vain travail hath worried me so sore, I am of them that furthest come behind.
Yet may I by no means, my worried mind Draw from the deer; but as she fleeth afore Fainting I follow.
I leave off therefore, Since in a net I seek to hold the wind.
Who list her hunt, I put him out of doubt, As well as I, may spend his time in vain; And graven in diamonds in letters plain There is written, her fair neck round about, "Noli me tangere, for Caesar's I am, And wild to hold, though I seem tame.
"
