Thou Sweet Ceclia

More Lovers Poems Page 1 | 2 | 3


Thou sweet Ceclia,

may heaven let us men live and love,

And though the sager sort our deeds reprove,

Let us not weigh them.

Heaven's great lamps do dive

Into their west, and straight again revive.

But, soon as once set is our little light,

Then must we sleep one ever-during night.

If all would lead their lives in love like me,

Then bloody swords and armour

should not be;

No drum or trumpet

peaceful sleeps should move,

Unless alarm came from the camp of love:

But fools do live and waste their little light,

And seek with pain their ever-during night.

When timely death my life and fortune ends,

Let not my hearse be vexed with mourning friends,

But let all lovers rich in triumph come

And with sweet pastimes grace my happy tomb:

So Ceclia, close up thou your little light,

And crown all your ever-during nights with love.
