Quotation by Andrew Marvell

For I so truly thee bemoane,
That I shall weep though I be Stone:
Until my Tears, still drooping, wear
My breast, themselves engraving there.
There at me feet shalt thou be laid,
Of purest Alabaster made:
For I would have thine Image be
White as I can, though not as Thee.
Andrew Marvell (1621–1678), British poet. The Nymph Complaining for the Death of Her Fawn (l. 115–122). . .
