Weepe you no more, sad fountaines

 

Weep you no more, sad fountains;

What need you flow so fast?

Look how the snowy mountains

Heaven‘s sun doth gently waste!

But my sun‘s heavenly eyes

View not your weeping,

That now lies sleeping,

Softly now, softly lies

Sleeping.

 

Sleep is a reconciling,

A rest that peace begets;

Doth not the sun rise smiling

When fair at e‘en he sets?

Rest you, then, rest, sad eyes!

Melt not in weeping,

While she lies sleeping,

Softly now, softly lies

Sleeping.
