Sweet Melancholy

Deep in shady sadness
Like a weeping cloud
Sweet melancholy comes
Drowsily on a morning rose

She dwells within beauty
On the rainbow of grief and sorrow
Where the dead leaf fell
Melancholy more beautiful
Than beauty’s self

Beauty must die
And joy must bid adieu
Thy mistress sweet melancholy
I shall taste the sadness
Of her aching pleasure

Turning to poison
Upon my tongue
Cold fingers closer to my lips
There did I rest
Amongst her trophies
Sweet melancholy
