Song: ‘Come, list and hark’
By Thomas Heywood (c. 1570–1641)
 
From ‘The Rape of Lucrece’

COME, list and hark;
  The bell doth toll
For some but now
  Departing soul.
And was not that        5
  Some ominous fowl,
The bat, the night-
  Crow, or screech-owl?
To these, I hear
  The wild wolf howl,        10
In this black night
  That seems to scowl.
All these my black
  Book shall enroll,
For hark! still, still        15
  The bell doth toll
For some but now
  Departing soul.
