I Would in That Sweet Bosom Be

 I would in that sweet bosom be 
(O sweet it is and fair it is!) 
Where no rude wind might visit me.
Because of sad austerities I would in that sweet bosom be.
I would be ever in that heart (O soft I knock and soft entreat her!) Where only peace might be my part.
Austerities were all the sweeter So I were ever in that heart.
