|Also sp. syneciosis|
|A coupling or bringing together of contraries, but not in order to oppose them to one another (as in antithesis).|
Thus for your sake I dayly dye
And do but seem to live in deede:
Thus is my blisse but miserie,
My lucre losse without your meede.
The contraries include "dye" and "live" in the first two lines, "blisse" and "miserie" in the third line, "lucre" [gain] and "losse" in the last line.
