[The Musical Shepherdess; Or Dorinda's lamentation for the loss of Amintas.] / Amintas 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 be[i]ng deny'd him here, mounts up above.
