Author's Note: Hm. I might get flamed for this, but since I am no stranger to flames, I pressed on and wrote this anyways. Please note that the last time I wrote a fanfic was about 4 years ago! I must admit that I am a bit rusty, but I hope that you can appreciate (or maybe not) this anyways! And another important note is that this is most definitely AU and is in no way related to what happens in the movie or comic. So please no screaming at me! On ward now to the fic!

Weep You No More Sad Fountain


"Weep you no more, sad fountains;
What need you flow so fast?
Look how the snowy mountains
Heaven's sun doth gently waste.
But my sun's heavenly eyes
View not your weeping,
That now lies sleeping
Softly, now softly lies

Sleep is a reconciling,
A rest that peace begets:
Doth not the sun rise smiling
When fair at even he sets?
Rest you then, rest, sad eyes,
Melt not in weeping,
While she lies sleeping
Softly, now softly lies
