HINC LACHRIMAE; OR THE AUTHOR TO AURORA: 27, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: And then the spring of my unstain'd affection
Last Line: And that which is, can ne'er be turn'd to nought.
Alternate Author Name(s): William Boxworth


And then the spring of my unstain'd affection,
With roses drest, and lilies sweetly grew,
Whose ruddy look gave it a fair complexion,
Till frowning Winter gave't another hue.
But stay, thou know'st already why I sing,
And why my heavy verse so gently move thee,
For that alone I did these sonnets bring,
That by these plaints thou may'st perceive I love thee:
For out of nothing, nothing can be brought,
And that which is, can ne'er be turn'd to nought.
