"Then can I grieve at grievances foregone,
And heavily from woe to woe tell o'er
The sad account of fore-bemoaned moan,
Which I new pay as if not paid before."
The speaker seems lost in the cycle of grief. He re-visits his woe over and over again. He sees the futility in this cycle of melancholy. This is effective in that we can really see the speaker is obsessed with re-living past memories.
