The country-mans lamentation for the death of his cow / A Country Swain of little wit one day, / Did kill his Cow because she went astray: / What's that to I or you, she was his own, / But now the Ass for his Cow doth moan: / Most pineously methink he cries in vain, / For now his Cow,s free from hunger, and pain: / What ails the fool to make so great o stir, / She cannot come to him, he may to her.
