Weep no more for what is past

WEEP NO MORE FOR WHAT IS PAST
(from "The Cruel Brother," 1630)

      EEP no more for what is past,
      For time in motion makes such haste
      He hath no leisure to descry
      Those errors which he passeth by.
      If we consider accident,
      And how repugnant unto sense
      It pays desert with bad event,
      We shall disparage Providence.
      Sir William Davenant (1606-1668)
