SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Mourn, mourn
Last Line: That thus the sun should harbour with the night.
Subject(s): Happiness; Joy; Delight


MOURN, mourn,
Day is with darkness fled
What heaven then governs earth,
Oh none, but hell in heaven's stead,
Chokes with his mists our mirth
Mourn, mourn,
Look now for no more day
Nor night, but that from hell,
Then all must as they may
In darkness learn to dwell.
But yet this change, must needs change our delight,
That thus the sun should harbour with the night.
