HINC LACHRIMAE; OR THE AUTHOR TO AURORA: 22, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Too silly shepherd, and unworthy too
Last Line: He falls no lower than the ground that falls.
Alternate Author Name(s): William Boxworth


Too silly shepherd, and unworthy too,
That durst presume that fair fruit to attempt,
But since entire affection made me woo,
O judge me not of modesty exempt,
For though I did aspire so high a task,
Yet best it is, and best to be commended;
I eas'ly can maintain't, no help I ask,
Let love and honour join, dispute is ended;
I'll mount the highest steps that honour calls,
He falls no lower than the ground that falls.
