PARTING, CELIA WEEPS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Weep not, my dear, for I shall go
Last Line: Thou wert thus loth to part with me.
Subject(s): Farewell; Grief; Parting


WEEP not, my dear, for I shall go
Loaden enough with mine own woe;
Add not thy heaviness to mine;
Since fate our pleasures must disjoin,
Why should our sorrows meet? If I
Must go, and lose thy company,
I wish not theirs: it shall relieve
My grief, to think thou dost not grieve.
Yet grieve, and weep, that I may bear
Every sigh and every tear
Away with me; so shall thy breast
And eyes, discharg'd, enjoy their rest;
And it will glad my heart to see
Thou wert thus loth to part with me.
