TO THE MOST PRINCELY AND VERTUOUS THE LADY ELIZABETH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: So parted you as if the world for ever
Last Line: To change should subject be and suffer earth's infection!
Subject(s): Mourning; Bereavement


1.

SO parted you as if the world for ever
Had lost with him her light:
Now could your tears hard flint to ruth excite,
Yet may you never
Your loves again partake in human sight:
O why should fate such two kind hearts dissever
As nature never knit more fair or firm together?

2.

So loved you as sister should a brother
Not in a common strain,
For princely blood doeth vulgar fire disdain:
But you each other
On earth embraced in a celestial chain.
Alas, for love! that heavenly-born affection
To change should subject be and suffer earth's infection!
