The musical Shepeherdess, or, Dorinda's lamentation for the loss of Amintas. / Amintor all Arcadia's Glory was, / A youth so sweet that all he did surpass. / But Times all mowing Sith this flower did cut, / Fate to his days hath the last period put: / For musick, and for singing, who but he, / Was fit to help the Gods with harmony? / His fair Dorinda, seeing he was gone, / And she poor mournful Damsel left alone, / Invokes the Nymphs to sing his praise, / Whilst she a Garland weaves, then ends her days, / Resolving not to stay behind her Love, / She being deny'd him here, mounts up above.
