Fletcher, John: Lay a Garland on My Hearse

Portre of Fletcher, John

Lay a Garland on My Hearse (English)

Lay a garland on my hearse

Of the dismal yew;

Maidens, willow branches bear;

Say, I died true.


My love was false, but I was firm

From my hour of birth.

Upon my buried body lie

Lightly, gentle earth!
