Original text and translations
Sudden passion with strange and rare tormenting
increaseth grief, and more it breeds my sorrow
the cause increased doth blear mine eyes with weeping
and daunt my thoughts from even until the morrow,
in this unrestful pain long must I languish,
till death draw near to rid my heart from anguish.
