Henry King, Bishop of Chichester (Генри Кинг, епископ Чичестерский)


The Boyes Answer To The Blackmoor


Black Maid, complain not that I fly,
When Fate commands Antipathy:
Prodigious might that union prove,
Where Night and Day together move,
And the conjunction of our lips
Not kisses make, but an Eclipse;
In which the mixed black and white
Portends more terrour than delight.
Yet if my shadow thou wilt be,
Enjoy thy dearest wish: But see
Thou take my shadowes property,
That hastes away when I come nigh:
Else stay till death hath blinded mee,
And then I will bequeath my self to thee.



Henry King, Bishop of Chichester's other poems:
  1. Sonnet. Tell me you stars that our affections move
  2. To the Queen at Oxford
  3. Psalm I
  4. To His Friends of Christ-Church upon the Mislike of the Marriage of the Arts Acted at Woodstock
  5. The Short Wooing
