From The Duchess of Malfi (“O let us howl, some heavy note”)
The Tragedy of The Duchess of Malfi (London: Printed by Nicholas Okes for John Waterson, 1623) sig. I4r-I4v / STC 25176
2 Some deadly-dogged howl,
3Sounding as from the threat'ning throat
4 Of beasts and fatal fowl.
5As ravens, screech-owls, bulls, and bears,
7Till irksome noise have cloyed your ears
8 And corrosived your hearts.
9At last when as our choir wants breath,
10 Our bodies being bless'd,
12 And die in love and rest.
