Do not fear to put thy feet
Naked in the river sweet;
Now, good night! may Sweetest Slumbers
And soft Silence fall in numbers
Then stretch our bones in a still gloomy valley;
Nothing's so dainty sweet as lovely melancholy.
Joys as winged dreams fly fast,
Why should sadness longer last?
All Love's Emblems and all cry,
Ladies, if not pluckt we dye,
Hear, ye ladies that despise,
What the mighty Love has done;
Fear examples, and be wise:
Care-charming Sleep, thou easer of all woes,
Brother to Death, sweetly thyself dispose
Come, all sad and solemn shows,
That are quick-eyed Pleasure's foes!
