Text and translations

English.png English text

Weep, O mine eyes and cease not,
alas, these your spring tides methinks increase not.
O when begin you
to swell so high that I may drown me in you?

German.png German translation

Weint, Augen, weint! Und schweigt nicht!
Doch ach! Ihr Tränenströme, denk ich, steigt nicht!
O wollt, o wollt beginnen
die hohe Flut, daß ich ertrink darinnen!

Portuguese.png Portuguese translation

Chorai, ó meus olhos, e não pareis;
Ai de mim, que me parece que estas vossas marés vivas não se incrementam.
Oh, quando ireis vós formar ondas tão altas
Que eu me possa afogar nelas?
