HINC LACHRIMAE; OR THE AUTHOR TO AURORA: 21, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The firstlings of my flock to her I gave
Last Line: Too silly shepherd so to be belov'd.
Alternate Author Name(s): William Boxworth
Subject(s): Courtship; Gifts & Giving


The firstlings of my flock to her I gave,
Twice happy flock to send your presents thither,
Thrice happy flock, for she the last shall have,
The last was hers, I sent them both together.
She took them both, and with a gentle eye,
(Where courtesy and grace together lay,
As loath to rob, yet loather to deny)
Show'd on the hills her willingness to stay;
Blest be the time when first her love I mov'd,
Too silly shepherd so to be belov'd.
