John Dowland: Tell me, true love

A Pilgrime’s Solace, 1612

Tell me, true love, where shall I seek they being,
In thoughts or words, in vows or promise making,
In reasons, looks, or passions, never seeing,
In men on earth or women’s minds partaking.
Thou canst not die, and therefore living tell me
Where is thy seat,
Why doth this age expel thee?
