Which all this time hath overslipp'd her thought, (1577)

That she with painted images hath spent; (1578)

Being from the feeling of her own grief brought (1579)

By deep surmise of others' detriment; (1580)

Losing her woes in shows of discontent.
It easeth some, though none it ever cured, (1582)

To think their dolour others have endured.
