When he is gone, poor Nature loves to weep.

Was wont to swell, like round and orient pearls,
Stood now within the pretty flow'rets' eyes,
Like tears that did their own disgrace bewail.

Or stars of morning, dewdrops, which the sun
Impearls on every leaf and every flower.

Trembling and sparkling on the thorn.
