    Lucrece (Modern)

    Which all this time hath overslipped her thought
    That she with painted images hath spent,
    Being from the feeling of her own grief brought
    By deep surmise of others' detriment,
    1580Losing her woes in shows of discontent.
    It easeth some, though none it ever cured,
    To think their dolor others have endured.
