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 piteously methinks he cries in vain, / For now his Cow's from hunger free, and pain; / What ails the fool to make so great a stir, / She cannot come to him, he may to her.
