For her gait, if she be walking
Language: English 
For her gait, if she be walking;
Be she sitting, I desire her
For her state's sake; and admire her
For her wit if she be talking;
	Gait and state and wit approve her;
	
For which all and each I love her.
Be she sullen, I commend her
For a modest. Be she merry,
For a kind one her prefer I.
Briefly everything doth lend her
	So much grace, and so approve her,
	That for everything I love her.
