Ah! how they scourge me!

March 23, 2016

 


  Why, Cesar is their onely King, not I:
  He clave the stonie rock, when they were drie;
  But surely not their hearts, as I well trie:
           Was ever grief like mine?

  Ah! how they scourge me! yet my tendernesse
  Doubles each lash: and yet their bitternesse
  Windes up my grief to a mysteriousnesse:
           Was ever grief like mine?

  They buffet me, and box me as they list,
  Who grasp the earth and heaven with my fist,
  And never yet, whom I would punish, miss’d:
           Was ever grief like mine?
