ADRIANI MORIENTIS ad Animam Suam.

〈original not transcribed〉

IMITATED.

1 Poor little, pretty, flutt'ring Thing,
2 Must We no longer live together?
3 And dost Thou prune thy trembling Wing,
4 To take thy Flight Thou know'st not whither?
5 Thy humorous Vein, thy pleasing Folly
6 Lyes all neglected, all forgot:
7 And pensive, wav'ring, melancholy,
8 Thou dread'st and hop'st Thou know'st not what.
