Excerpt: Unto the boundless Ocean of thy beauty // Runs this poor river, charg'd with streams of zeal: // Returning thee the tribute of my duty, // Which here my love, my youth, my plaints reveal. // Here I unclasp the book of my charg'd soul, // Where I have cast th'accounts of all my care: // Here have I summ'd my sighs, here I enroll // How they were spent for thee; look what they are. // Look on the dear expences of my youth, // And see how just I reckon with thine eyes: // Examine well they beauty in my truth, // And cross my cares ere greater sums arise. // Read it, sweet maid, though it be done but slightly; // Who can show all his love, doth love but lightly. // II // Go, wailing verse, the infants of my love, // Minerva-like, brought forth without a Mother: // Present the image of the cares I prove; // Witness your Father's grief exceeds all other. // Sigh out a story of her cruel deeds, // With interrupted accents of despair: // A monument that whosoever reads // May justly praise, and blame my loveless Fair. // Say her disdain hath dried up my blood, // And starved you, in succours still denying; // Press to her eyes, importune me some good; // Waken her sleeping pity with your crying. // Knock at that hard heart, beg till you have mov'd her, // And tell th'unkind how dearly I have lov'd her. // III // If so it hap this offspring of my care, // These fatal Anthems, sad and mournful Songs, // Come to their view, who like afflicted are; // Let them yet sigh their own, and moan my wrongs.
