HINC LACHRIMAE; OR THE AUTHOR TO AURORA: 1, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Why should my pen aspire so high a strain
Last Line: To lovers only resolution bring.
Alternate Author Name(s): William Boxworth


WHY should my pen aspire so high a strain,
A verse to guide, to guide a verse unfit?
Are they the fittest voices to complain?
Admit they be, they're for a riper wit;
Yet you who these unpolisht lines shall read,
Deride them not, they from distraction came;
Let that suffice, my love alone shall plead
For their defect, and shall excuse the same:
Excuse the same, for what from love doth spring,
To lovers only resolution bring.
