THE INCURABLE; A SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: One, amongst flowers, green leaves, and the cool grass
Last Line: Flowers, leaves, grass, cave, grove, wars, the air, nor spring.
Subject(s): Grief; Sorrow; Sadness


ONE, amongst flowers, green leaves, and the cool grass
Takes his delight, and pleasant hours does pass,
This in a cave can rest, or quiet grove,
And that in wars forgets the thoughts of Love:
Some vent their sighs to th' air, and ease do find,
A spring may quench the fever of the mind.
But to my grief no remedy can bring,
Flowers, Leaves, Grass, Cave, Grove, Wars, the Air, nor Spring.
