Ballad on Queen Anne's Death
Language: English 
March with his wind hath struck a cedar tall, 
And weeping April mourns the cedars fall, 
And May intends no flowers her month shall bring 
Since she must lose the flower of all the spring.
    Thus March's wind hath caused April showers,
    And yet sad May must lose her flow'r of flowers.
