Hinc illæ Lacrymæ

.

This was the real offence; this was the true secret of the annoyance; this, entre nous, was the real source of the vexation.

“Perchance ʹtis Mara’s song that gives offence—Illinc illæ lacrymæ—I fear

The song that once could charm the royal sense,

Delights, alas! no more the royal ear.”
