Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.

John Dowland - Come again

Evelyn Tubb, Michael Fields

Barbara Bonney with Jacob Heringman

—Come again: sweet love doth now invite


John Dowland, Come again! sweet love doth now invite

Come again! sweet love doth now invite
Thy graces that refrain
To do me due delight,
To see, to hear, to touch, to kiss, to die,
With thee again in sweetest sympathy.

Come again! that I may cease to mourn
Through thy unkind disdain;
For now left and forlorn
I sit, I sigh, I weep, I faint, I die
In deadly pain and endless misery.

All the day the sun that lends me shine
By frowns do cause me pine
And feeds me with delay;
Her smiles, my springs that makes my joys to grow,
Her frowns the Winters of my woe.
