HINC LACHRIMAE; OR THE AUTHOR TO AURORA: 7, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Even as thy dues, and what I can procure
Last Line: Gainst thee, and to thee only's my complaint.
Alternate Author Name(s): William Boxworth


Even as thy dues, and what I can procure,
More from my heart, to thee shall be presented;
Yet hadst thou but the tenth part I endure,
I'm sure thy last neglect should be repented;
Thou wouldst be sorry that I have misspent
My time in sighs, for prayers only free:
But pray'rs are kill'd through too much discontent,
For he that loves can never zealous be.
'Tis thee alone must be my gracious Saint:
Gainst thee, and to thee only's my complaint.
