My Sweet Mistress

Language: English

 My sweet mistress, 
 she weeps when she sees me work.
 My sweet mistress, 
 the mistress I serve quickens what's dead
 and makes my labors pleasures!
 There be some sports are painful!
 And their labours delight in them.
 Some kinds of baseness are nobly undergone.
 My sweet mistress, she weeps for me.
