TESTO DEL LIED"Weeping and Kissing"
di Sir Edward Sherburne (1618-1702)
A kiss I begged, but smiling she
denied it me.
When straight, her cheeks with tears o'erflown -
now kinder grown -
What smiling she'd not let me have
she weeping gave.
Then you who scornful beauties are,
hope yet relief
For love (who tears from smiles) can draw
Pleasure from grief.
