  A BALLAD OF HIGH ENDEAVOR  

Ah Night! blind germ of days to be,
    Ah, me! ah me!
     (Sweet Venus, mother!)
What wail of smitten strings hear we?
    (Ah me! ah me!
                            Hey diddle dee!)

Ravished by clouds our Lady Moon,
    Ah me! ah me!
    (Sweet Venus, mother!)
Sinks swooning in a lady-swoon
    (Ah me! ah me!
                            Dum diddle dee!)

What profits it to rise i' the dark?
    Ah me! ah me!
    (Sweet Venus, mother!)
If love but over-soar its mark
    (Ah me! ah me!
                            Hey diddle dee!)

What boots to fall again forlorn?
    Ah me! ah me!
    (Sweet Venus, mother!)
Scorned by the grinning hound of scorn,
    (Ah me! ah me!
                            Dum diddle dee!)

Art thou not greater who art less?
    Ah me! ah me!
    (Sweet Venus, mother!)
Low love fulfilled of low success?
    (Ah me! ah me!
                            Hey diddle dee!)

                                            Unknown.
