HINC LACHRIMAE; OR THE AUTHOR TO AURORA: 44, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Love's coach, they say, is made of ebony
Last Line: Tis not alone thy face I love, but thee.
Alternate Author Name(s): William Boxworth
Subject(s): Love


Love's coach, they say, is made of ebony,
And drawn by turtle-doves of silver hue,
To show the brightness of pure amity,
With turtles yok't, than turtles what more true?
Along whose sides the purple silk doth twind
The silver ouches to the golden wheels;
So outward beauty should a lover bind,
For who the outward love the inward feels,
Eyesight confirms, but virtues motives be:
'Tis not alone thy face I love, but thee.
