IN A COLLEGE GARDEN.

Senex.  Saye, cushat, callynge from the brake,
What ayles thee soe to pyne? 
Thy carefulle heart shall cease to ake
When dayes be fyne
And greene thynges twyne: 
Saye, cushat, what thy griefe to myne?

Turtur.  Naye, gossyp, loyterynge soe late,
What ayles thee thus to chyde? 
My love is fled by garden-gate;
Since Lammas-tyde
I wayte my bryde. 
Saye, gossyp, whom dost thou abyde?

Senex.  Loe!  I am he, the ‘Lonelie Manne,’
Of Time forgotten quite,
That no remembered face may scanne—­
Sadde eremyte,
I wayte tonyghte
Pale Death, nor any other wyghte.

O cushat, cushat, callynge lowe,
Goe waken Time from sleepe: 
Goe whysper in his ear, that soe
His besom sweepe
Me to that heape
Where all my recollections keepe.

Hath he forgott?  Or did I viewe
A ghostlye companye
This even, by the dismalle yewe,
Of faces three
That beckoned mee
To land where no repynynges bee?

O Harrye, Harrye, Tom and Dicke,
Each lost companion! 
Why loyter I among the quicke,
When ye are gonne? 
Shalle I alone
Delayinge crye ‘Anon, Anon’?

Naye, let the spyder have my gowne,
To brayde therein her veste. 
My cappe shal serve, now I ‘goe downe,’
For mouse’s neste. 
Loe! this is best. 
I care not, soe I gayne my reste.
