So she, deep-drenched in a sea of care, (1101)

Holds disputation with each thing she views, (1102)

And to herself all sorrow doth compare; (1103)

No object but her passion's strength renews; (1104)

And as one shifts, another straight ensues:
Sometime her grief is dumb and hath no words; (1106)

Sometime 'tis mad and too much talk affords.
