John Fletcher: ASPATIA’S SONG

John Fletcher (1579-1625)

Aspatia's Song                                                

LAY a garland on my herse
   Of the dismal yew;
Maidens, willow branches bear;
   Say, I died true.

My love was false, but I was firm
   From my hour of birth.
Upon my buried body lie
   Lightly, gentle earth!
