Appendix
II. Unacknowledged and Uncollected Translations.

By Charles D’Orleans

HENCE away, begone, begone,
  Carking care and melancholy!
  Think ye thus to govern me
All my life along, as ye have done?
That shall ye not, I promise ye,        5
  Reason shall have the mastery.
So hence away, begone, begone,
  Carking care and melancholy!
 
If ever ye return this way,
  With your mournful company,        10
A curse be on ye, and the day
  That brings ye moping back to me!
Hence away, begone, I say,
  Carking care and melancholy!
