Joshua Sylvester

Joshua Sylvester (156328 September 1618) was an English poet.


Poem: Love's Omnipresence [1][edit]

  • Were I as base as is the lowly plain,
    And you, my Love, as high as heaven above,
    Yet should the thoughts of me your humble swain
    Ascend to heaven, in honour of my Love.
  • And look upon you with ten thousand eyes
    Till heaven wax'd blind, and till the world were done.
