Haue all our passions certaine proper vents,
And sorrow none that is her owne ?
But she must borow others complements,
To make her inward feelings knowne ?
Are Ioyes delights and deathes compassion showne,
With one lyke face and one lamenting part ?
Then onely thou poore hart that know'st more reason why,
Pyne, Fret, Consume, Swell, Burst and Dye.
