HINC LACHRIMAE; OR THE AUTHOR TO AURORA: 43, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: As much as is in man in me should be
Last Line: Within my breast, and chiefly thee I want.
Alternate Author Name(s): William Boxworth


As much as is in man in me should be,
But that thou hast bereft me of my heart;
I want those glozing words of flattery,
By which some men gain more than by desert;
I want that wit which ought to parallel
Thy virtues, and procure deserving bliss;
I want that strength and vigour to repel
Dejected grief, which guides love's wheel amiss;
I want those means which should all good supplant
Within my breast, and chiefly thee I want.
