      I DO believ,The Ev'ning being shady and obscure,The very Silence did me griev, And Sorrow more procure: A secret WantDid make me think my Fortune scant.I was so blind, I could not find my Health,No Joy mine Ey could there espy, nor Wealth.----------------------------------------------------------------------- The shady Trees,The Ev'ning dark, the humming Bees,The chirping Birds, mute Springs and Fords, conspire,While they deny to answer my Desire.
