235. Dawn
  
FLY hence, shadows, that do keep 
Watchful sorrows charm'd in sleep! 
Tho' the eyes be overtaken, 
Yet the heart doth ever waken 
Thoughts chain'd up in busy snares         5
Of continual woes and cares: 
Love and griefs are so exprest 
As they rather sigh than rest. 
    Fly hence, shadows, that do keep 
    Watchful sorrows charm'd in sleep!  10
