Lyrics: Henry Bold

Lay that sullen garland by thee;
keep it for th'Elizian shade.
Take my wreath of lusty ivy,
Not of that fond myrtle made.
When I see thy soul descending
To that cold unfertile plain
Of sad fools, the lake attending;
Thou shalt wear the crown again.
Sadness may some pity move;
Mirth and rage conquer love
