BLACK TEARS FROM MY SORROWFUL QUILL
Let them die with you, love, now you are dead,
the affections that long for you in vain,
the eyes which you deprive of seeing
beautiful light that you once spread.

Let this unfortunate lyre die, the echoes
you influenced, crying in despair,
and let these awkward prints remain
black tears from my sorrowful quill.

Let death itself feel compassion
and regret it could not spare you,
and let love lament its bitter fate

if once, ambitious to enjoy you,
it wished for the eyes to see you,
well now they’d only serve to mourn you.
