TO DELIA: 2, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Go wailing verse, the infants of my love
Last Line: And tell th' unkind how dearly I have loved her.
Subject(s): Love


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 succors 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 moved her;
And tell th' unkind how dearly I have loved her.
