Follow thy fair sun, unhappy shadow,
   Though thou be black as night,
   And she made all of light;
Yet follow thy fair sun, unhappy shadow!

Follow her, whose light thy light depriveth!
   Though here thou livest disgraced,
   And she in heaven is placed;
Yet follow her whose light the world reviveth!

Follow those pure beams, whose beauty burneth!
   That so have scorchèd thee;
   As thou still black must be,
Till her kind beams thy black to brightness turneth!

Follow her, while yet her glory shineth!
   There comes a luckless night
   That will dim all her light;
And this the black unhappy shade divineth.

Follow still, since so thy Fates ordained!
   The sun must have his shade,
   Till both at once do fade;
The sun still proved, the shadow still disdained!
