Song in Hamlet

William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
HOW 1 should I your true love know
  From another one?
By his cockle hat and staff,
  And his sandal shoon.
He is dead and gone, lady,        5
  He is dead and gone;
At his head a grass-green turf,
  At his heels a stone.
White his shroud as the mountain snow,
  Larded all with sweet flowers,        10
Which bewept to the grave did go
  With true-love showers.
