Doth Sorrow Fret Thy Soul by Edward de Vere

Doth sorrow fret thy soul? O direful sprite.
Doth pleasure feed thy heart? O blessed man.
Hast thou been happy once? O heavy plight.
Are thy mishaps forepast? O happy than (then)
Or hast thou bliss in eld? O bliss too late:
But hast thou bliss in youth? O sweet estate.

E. of O.

 

Professor Steven May lists this poem as “wrongly attributed” to Oxford.
