HINC LACHRIMAE; OR THE AUTHOR TO AURORA: 11, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: What though thy riches ask as high a fortune
Last Line: One gave consent, the other gave denial.
Alternate Author Name(s): William Boxworth


What though thy riches ask as high a fortune,
And with thy birth doth bear an equal sway?
O, were that all, I know I might importune
A little help, for riches will decay.
Even as thy wealth, so will thy beauty fade,
And then thou wilt repent thee of my wrong;
A secret sorrow shall thy breast invade,
Thy heart shall be as faulty as thy tongue:
They both shall vex, and this shall be the trial,
One gave consent, the other gave denial.
