EMBLEMS OF LOVE: CUPID TO CHLOE WEEPING; A SONNET, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: See, whilst thou weep'st fair chloe, see
Last Line: But that dear breast on which they fall.
Subject(s): Love


SEE, whilst thou weep'st, fair Chloe, see
The world in sympathy with thee.
The cheerful birds no longer sing;
Each drops his head and hangs his wing:
The clouds have bent their bosom lower,
And shed their sorrows in a shower;
The brooks beyond their limits flow,
And louder murmurs speak their woe:
The nymphs and swains adopt thy cares:
They heave thy sighs and weep thy tears,
Fantastic nymph! that Grief should move
Thy heart obdurate against Love.
Strange tears! whose power can soften all --
But that dear breast on which they fall.
