TO A LADY WEEPING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: O now the certain cause I know
Last Line: This from your cheeks, that from your eyes.
Subject(s): Eyes; Grief; Tears; Sorrow; Sadness


O NOW the certain cause I know,
Whence the rose and lily grow
In your fair cheeks, the often showers,
Which you thus weep, do breed those flowers.
If that the floods could Venus bring,
Or warlike Mars from flowers spring;
Why may not hence two gods arise?
This from your cheeks, that from your eyes.
