                     <div class="line">Without the beauty of a woman's face?</div>
                     <p>From women's eyes this doctrine I derive;
They are the ground, the books, the academes
From whence doth spring the true Promethean fire</p>
                     <div class="line">Why, universal plodding poisons up</div>
                     <div class="line">The nimble spirits in the arteries,</div>
                     <div class="line">As motion and long-during action tires</div>
                     <div class="line">The sinewy vigour of the traveller.</div>
                     <div class="line">Now, for not looking on a woman's face,</div>
                     <div class="line">You have in that forsworn the use of eyes</div>
                     <div class="line">And study too, the causer of your vow;</div>
                     <div class="line">For where is any author in the world</div>
                     <div class="line">Teaches such beauty as a woman's eye?</div>
                     <div class="line">Learning is but an adjunct to ourself</div>
                     <div class="line">And where we are our learning likewise is:</div>
                     <div class="line">Then when ourselves we see in ladies' eyes,</div>
                     <div class="line">Do we not likewise see our learning there?</div>
                     <div class="line">O, we have made a vow to study, lords,</div>
                     <div class="line">And in that vow we have forsworn our books.</div>
                     <div class="line">For when would you, my liege, or you, or you,</div>
                     <div class="line">In leaden contemplation have found out</div>
                     <div class="line">Such fiery numbers as the prompting eyes</div>
                     <div class="line">Of beauty's tutors have enrich'd you with?</div>
                     <div class="line">Other slow arts entirely keep the brain;</div>
                     <div class="line">And therefore, finding barren practisers,</div>
                     <div class="line">Scarce show a harvest of their heavy toil:</div>
                     <div class="line">But love, first learned in a lady's eyes,</div>
                     <div class="line">Lives not alone immured in the brain;</div>
                     <div class="line">But, with the motion of all elements,</div>
                     <div class="line">Courses as swift as thought in every power,</div>
                     <div class="line">And gives to every power a double power,</div>
                     <div class="line">Above their functions and their offices.</div>
                     <div class="line">It adds a precious seeing to the eye;</div>
                     <div class="line">A lover's eyes will gaze an eagle blind;</div>
                     <div class="line">A lover's ear will hear the lowest sound,</div>
                     <div class="line">When the suspicious head of theft is stopp'd:</div>
                     <div class="line">Love's feeling is more soft and sensible</div>
                     <div class="line">Than are the tender horns of cockl'd snails;</div>
                     <div class="line">Love's tongue proves dainty Bacchus gross in taste:</div>
                     <div class="line">For valour, is not Love a Hercules,</div>
                     <div class="line">Still climbing trees in the Hesperides?</div>
                     <div class="line">Subtle as Sphinx; as sweet and musical</div>
                     <div class="line">As bright Apollo's lute, strung with his hair:</div>
                     <div class="line">And when Love speaks, the voice of all the gods</div>
                     <div class="line">Makes heaven drowsy with the harmony.</div>
                     <div class="line">Never durst poet touch a pen to write</div>
                     <div class="line">Until his ink were temper'd with Love's sighs;</div>
                     <div class="line">O, then his lines would ravish savage ears</div>
                     <div class="line">And plant in tyrants mild humility.</div>
                     <div class="line">From women's eyes this doctrine I derive:</div>
                     <div class="line">They sparkle still the right Promethean fire;</div>
                     <div class="line">They are the books, the arts, the academes,</div>

                     <div class="line">Else none at all in ought proves excellent.</div>
                     <div class="line">Then fools you were these women to forswear,</div>
                     <div class="line">Or keeping what is sworn, you will prove fools.</div>
                     <div class="line">For wisdom's sake, a word that all men love,</div>

                     <div class="line">It is religion to be thus forsworn,</div>
