First Line: The tears o'erflow'd fair cynthia's eyes

Subject(s): Tears


THE tears o'erflow'd fair Cynthia's eyes,
Her pretty bird away was flown;
For this great loss she made her moan,
And quarrell'd with her destinies.

My Heart a secret joy exprest,
As hoping good from that escape,
Took wings, and in the fug'tive's shape,
Got shelter in her snowy breast.

Which prov'd a fatal resting-place,
For she, th' impostor when she found,
Gave it with spite a mortal wound,
Then pleas'd, she laugh'd, and dried her face.
