    The Passionate Pilgrim (Octavo, 1599)

    That to heare her so complaine,
    Scarce I could from teares refraine:
    For her griefes so liuely showne,
    Made me thinke vpon mine owne.
    375Ah (thought I) thou mournst in vaine,
    None takes pitty on thy paine:
    Senslesse Trees, they cannot heare thee,
    Ruthlesse Beares, they will not cheere thee.
    King Pandion, he is dead:
    380All thy friends are lapt in Lead.
    All thy fellow Birds doe sing,
    Carelesse of thy sorrowing.
