|Oft haue I
for him that hears me not
by Thomas Campion
Oft haue I sigh'd for him that heares me not ;
Who absent hath both loue and mee forgot.
O yet I languish still through his delay :
Dayes seem as yeares when wisht friends breake their day.
Had hee but lou'd as common louers vse,
His faithlesse stay some kindnesse would excuse :
O yet I languish still, still constant mourne
For him that can breake vowes but not returne.
