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!
