Fine knacks for ladies

Great gifts are guiles and look for gifts again,
My trifles come, as treasures from my mind,
It is a precious jewel to be plain,
Sometimes in shell the Orient’s pearls we find,
Of others take a sheaf, of me a grain.

John Dowland (1563-1626)
Second Booke of Songs or Ayres (1600)
