FETES GALANTES: ROMANCES SANS PAROLE, SELECTION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Tears in my heart that weeps
Last Line: Why thou hast all this woe.
Subject(s): Grief; Sorrow; Sadness


Tears in my heart that weeps,
Like the rain upon the town.
What drowsy languor steeps
In tears my heart that weeps?

O sweet sound of the rain
On earth and on the roofs!
For a heart's weary pain
O the song of the rain!

Vain tears, vain tears, my heart!
What, none hath done thee wrong?
Tears without reason start
From my disheartened heart.

This is the weariest woe,
O heart, of love and hate
Too weary, not to know
Why thou hast all this woe.
