It was important for most of the Baroque artists to portray the psychological element of their ...

But our dream became our disgrace
Why could not thou wait for a little while?
For I would wake up and smile
I cannot stop my tears now
As my eyes try not to see thee
Oh, love could not be wiser to me!
With thy d...
