Semper Dowland.
With gratitude to J. Dowland.

Light trill, night still, weighted thought,
Relayed, played, as bard taught, of loss, love
And ultimately, untimely selfish death—

A pavan, jig, puffe, alman or galliard,
Repenting, lamenting, frequenting sorrow,
Melancholic ever, as rain-soaked limp oaks

In winter nights; weary days, dismays, sues.
