HINC LACHRIMAE; OR THE AUTHOR TO AURORA: 18, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Mistake me not, my pen was ne'er defil'd
Last Line: Excepting this, I never knew thee sin.
Alternate Author Name(s): William Boxworth


Mistake me not, my pen was ne'er defil'd
With any stain, that may thy honour stain;
From all lascivious thoughts I am exil'd;
So shall my pen immodest sense refrain;
Thou art as free, as pure from any blot,
And therefore shalt with lotus crown thy brows.
If ever thou didst sin, I knew it not:
Excepting this, the fraction of thy vows,
I vow by Heaven and all the powers therein,
Excepting this, I never knew thee sin.
