Parthenophil and Parthenophe
Madrigal 14. Ah, ten times worse tormented than before!
Barnabe Barnes (1569?–1609)
 
AH, ten times worse tormented than before!
    Ten times more pity shouldst thou take of me!
          I have endured; then, Sweet! restore
          That pleasure, which procured this pain!
    Thou scorn’st my lines! (a Saint, which make of thee!)        5
    Where true desires of thine hard heart complain,
          There thou, ’bove STELLA placed;
    ’Bove LAURA; with ten thousand more installed:
          And now, proud, thinks me graced,
That am to thee (though merciless!) enthralled.        10
