Francis T. Palgrave, ed. (1824–1897). The Golden Treasury.  1875.
 
W. Drummond
 
XLIII. Madrigal
 
MY thoughts hold mortal strife; 
I do detest my life, 
And with lamenting cries 
Peace to my soul to bring 
Oft call that prince which here doth monarchize:         5
—But he, grim grinning King, 
Who caitiffs scorns, and doth the blest surprise, 
Late having deck'd with beauty's rose his tomb, 
Disdains to crop a weed, and will not come.
