Amyntas Go, Thou Art Undone (song) Amyntas Go, Thou Art Undone (song)

Amyntas Go, Thou Art Undone (song)
Amyntas go, thou art undone, Thy faithful heart is cross'd by fate; That love is better not begun, Where love is come to love too late.(1) Had she professed(2) hidden fires, Or show'd one(3) knot that tied her heart, I could have quench'd my first desires, And we had only met to part. But, tyrant, thus to murder men, And shed a lover's harmless... Poems - Post by : bpwarrior - Date : October 2011 - Author : Henry Vaughan - Read : 2178

To His Friend Being In Love To His Friend Being In Love

To His Friend Being In Love
Ask, lover, ere thou diest; let one poor breath Steal from thy lips, to tell her of thy death; Doating idolater! can silence bring Thy saint propitious? or will Cupid fling One arrow for thy paleness? leave to try This silent courtship of a sickly eye. Witty to tyranny, she too well knows This but the incense of thy private vows, That breaks forth at thine eyes, and doth betray The sacrifice thy wounded...

To Amoret To Amoret

To Amoret
The Sigh. Nimble sigh, on thy warm wings, Take this message and depart; Tell Amoret, that smiles and sings, At what thy airy voyage brings, That thou cam'st lately from my heart. Tell my lovely foe that I Have no more such spies to send, But one or two that I intend, Some few minutes ere I die, To her white bosom to...

Tyrant, farewell! this heart, the prize And triumph of thy scornful eyes, I sacrifice to heaven, and give To quit my sins, that durst believe A woman's easy faith, and place True joys in a changing face. Yet ere I go: by all those tears And sighs I spent 'twixt hopes and fears; By thy own glories, and that hour Which first enslav'd me to thy power; I beg,...

To My Ingenuous Friend, R. W. To My Ingenuous Friend, R. W.

To My Ingenuous Friend, R. W.
When we are dead, and now, no more Our harmless mirth, our wit, and score Distracts the town; when all is spent That the base niggard world hath lent Thy purse, or mine; when the loath'd noise Of drawers, 'prentices and boys Hath left us, and the clam'rous bar Items no pints i' th' Moon or Star; When no calm whisp'rers wait the doors, To fright us with forgotten scores; And...

The Shepherds The Shepherds

The Shepherds
Sweet, harmless livers! on whose holy leisure Waits innocence and pleasure; Whose leaders to those pastures and clear springs Were patriarchs, saints, and kings; How happened it that in the dead of night You only saw true light, While Palestine was fast asleep and lay Without one thought of day? Was it because those first and blessed swains Were pilgrims on those plains When they received the promise, for which now 'Twas there first shown to you? 'Tis true he loves that dust whereon they go That serve him here below, And therefore might for memory of those His love then...
