The country-mans lamentation for the death of his cow : a country swain of little wit one day, did kill his cow because she went astray : what's that to I or you, she was his own, but now the ass for his cow doth moan : most pineously methink he cries in vain, for now his cow,s [sic] free from hunger, and pain : what ails the fool to make so great a stir, she cannot come to him, he may to her : to a pleasant country tune, called, Colly my cow.
