    Song : Sweetest love, I do not go

    SWEETEST love, I do not go,
    For weariness of thee,
    Nor in hope the world can show
    A fitter love for me ;
    But since that I
    At the last must part, 'tis best,
    Thus to use myself in jest
    By feigned deaths to die.

    Yesternight the sun went hence,
    And yet is here to-day ;
    He hath no desire nor sense,
    Nor half so short a way ;
    Then fear not me,
    But believe that I shall make
    Speedier journeys, since I take
    More wings and spurs than he.

    O how feeble is man's power,
    That if good fortune fall,
    Cannot add another hour,
    Nor a lost hour recall ;
    But come bad chance,
    And we join to it our strength,
    And we teach it art and length,
    Itself o'er us to advance.

    When thou sigh'st, thou sigh'st not wind,
    But sigh'st my soul away ;
    When thou weep'st, unkindly kind,
    My life's blood doth decay.
    It cannot be
    That thou lovest me as thou say'st,
    If in thine my life thou waste,
    That art the best of me.

    Let not thy divining heart
    Forethink me any ill ;
    Destiny may take thy part,
    And may thy fears fulfil.
    But think that we
    Are but turn'd aside to sleep.
    They who one another keep
    Alive, ne'er parted be.
