First Line: What then is love but mourning?
Last Line: Come away! Come away, my darling!'
Subject(s): Love Nature Of


WHAT then is love but mourning?
What desire, but a self-burning?
Till she, that hates, doth love return,
Thus will I mourn, thus will I sing,
'Come away! come away, my darling!'

Beauty is but a blooming,
Youth in his glory entombing;
Time hath a while, which none can stay:
Then come away, while thus I sing,
'Come away! come away, my darling!'

Summer in winter fadeth;
Gloomy night heavenly light shadeth:
Like to the morn, are Venus' flowers;
Such are her hours: then will I sing,
'Come away! come away, my darling!'
