~ FAREWELL SONNET ~

FAREWELL, maid, thy love has vanish’d;
   Gone off like the morning dew,
Farewell, maid, my peace is banish’d;
   Adieu! a sad, a long adieu!
Weary world, I now must leave thee;
   Sun and moon, a long farewell;
Farewell, maid, no more I’ll grieve thee,
   Soon you’ll hear my funeral knell.
Soon the lips that oft have kiss’d thee,
   Mouldering in the dust will lie;
And the heart that oft hath blessed thee,
  Soon must cease to sigh.
Soon the tongue that still rehearses
   All thy beauty, fickle fair;
Soon the hand that writes these verses
   Shall to kindred dust repair.
Friends that constant were, and true aye,
   Fare-you-well, my race is run;
Heartless, lorn, benighted, weary,
   Every earthly hope is gone.
Gloomy grave, you’ll soon receive me,
   All my sorrows here shall close;
Here no fickle fair shall grieve me;
   Here my heart shall find repose.
