Aspatia’s Song
By John Fletcher (1579–1625)
 
LAY 1 a garland on my hearse
  Of the dismal yew;
Maidens, willow branches bear;
  Say, I died true.
 
My love was false, but I was firm        5
  From my hour of birth.
Upon my buried body lie
  Lightly, gentle earth!
 
Note 1. From Beaumont and Fletcher’s The Maid’s Tragedy, 1619. [back]
