Thro' the cypress forests sighing,
In the night-wind madly flying,
Hellish forms with streaming hair; read more »
Cold in the earth - and the deep snow piled above thee!
Far, far removed, cold in the dreary grave!
Have I forgot, my only Love, to love thee,
Severed at last by Time's all-severing wave? read more »
LET me close the eyes of my soul
That I may not see
What stands between thee and me.

By Nature only for my sorrows made,
I'll spend this voyce in crys,

Die because a woman's fair?
Or make pale my cheeks with care
'Cause another's rosy are? read more »
