HINC LACHRIMAE; OR THE AUTHOR TO AURORA: 46, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A poet said, if cupid be a power
Last Line: Alive to death, but dead unto the world.
Alternate Author Name(s): William Boxworth


A poet said, if Cupid be a power,
Let him possess me now with his desire,
When suddenly his eyes began to lower,
And he expir'd his life in helpless fire.
And so must I perish within that flame,
If these will not thy heart to pity bend;
If still thy flinty heart remains the same,
I wish that with this line, my life might end;
And this complaint about the earth be hurl'd,
Alive to death, but dead unto the world.
