FOURTH BOOK OF AIRS: SONG 1. A LITTLE BREATH I'LL BORROW, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Leave prolonging thy distress!
Last Line: I die alone through her despite.
Subject(s): Physicians; Doctors


LEAVE prolonging thy distress!
All delays afflict the dying.
Many lost sighs long I spent, to her for mercy crying;
But now, vain mourning, cease!
I'll die, and mine own griefs release.

Thus departing from this light
To those shades that end in sorrow,
Yet a small time of complaint a little breath I'll borrow,
To tell my once delight
I die alone through her despite.
