OF DISSEMBLING WORDS.

T HROUGHOUT the world if it were sought,
  Fair words enough a man shall find ;
  They be good cheap, they cost right
                          nought,
        Their substance is but only wind ;
            But well to say and so to mean,
            That sweet accord is seldom seen.
