Francis T. Palgrave, ed. (1824–1897). The Golden Treasury.  1875.
 
W. Shakespeare
 
XXIX. Remembrance
 
WHEN to the sessions of sweet silent thought 
I summon up remembrance of things past, 
I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought, 
And with old woes new wail my dear time's waste; 
  
Then can I drown an eye, unused to flow,         5
For precious friends hid in death's dateless night, 
And weep afresh love's long-since-cancell'd woe, 
And moan the expense of many a vanish'd sight. 
  
Then can I grieve at grievances foregone, 
And heavily from woe to woe tell o'er  10
The sad account of fore-bemoanèd moan, 
Which I new pay as if not paid before: 
  
—But if the while I think on thee, dear friend, 
All losses are restored, and sorrows end.
