Weepe forth your teares and doe lament,
He’s dead who living was of all the world beloved.
Let dolorous lamenting still be spread,
Thorough all the earth, that all harts may be moved
To sigh and plaine, since death hath slaine Prince Henery.
Oh, had he liv’d our hopes had still encreased,
But he is dead and all our joyes deceased.
