MY verse to thee I'm dedicating,
Mine own familiar friend,
O Pain! who shares my couch while waiting
For dawn with night to blend.

Before the door of my house standing,
He bares his shining blade,
And challenges all: hence commanding
Those unasked who invade.

To be our guest he doth full often
His sister Sorrow press;
Long does she rest in house and croft then,
And stitches me a dress.

Of all companions he's most constant;
My wine to pour he's fain;
And a fresh cup, aye vigilant,
He fills when one I drain.

Now envy ye not my estate
Who such a friend hath found?
Death only can us separate,
So closely are we bound.
