Page xi - I was your heart, your soul, and treasure; And evermore you sobb'd and sigh'd Burning in flames beyond all measure : —Three days endured your love to me, And it was lost in other three! Adieu Love, adieu Love, untrue Love, Untrue Love, untrue Love, adieu Love; Your mind is light, soon lost for new love.
Page xi - While that the sun with his beams hot Scorched the fruits in vale and mountain, Philon the shepherd, late forgot, Sitting beside a crystal fountain, In shadow of a green oak tree Upon his pipe this song play'd he...
Page viii - WOUNDED I am and dare not seek relief For this new stroke unseen but not unfelt ; No blood nor bruise is witness of my grief, But sighs and tears wherewith I mourn and melt. If I complain, my witness is suspect, If I contain, with cares I am undone: Sit still and die, tell truth and be reject ; O hateful choice, that sorrow cannot shun.
Page vii - IS Love a boy ? What means he then to strike ? Or is he blind ? Why will he be a guide ? Is he a man ? Why doth he hurt his like ? Is he a god ? Why doth he men deride ? Not one of these, but one compact of all.

Page xii - Sure you have made me passing glad That you your mind so soon removed, Before that I the leisure had To choose you for my best beloved.

Page ix - FROM Cytheron the warlike boy is fled, And smiling sits upon a virgin's lap, Thereby to train poor misers to the trap, Whom beauty draws with fancy to be fed. And when desire with eager looks is led, Then from her eyes The arrow flies, Feathered with flame, armed with a golden head. There careless thoughts are freed of that flame, Wherewith her thralls are scorched to the heart. If Love would so, would God...
Page xii - Another Shepherd you did see To whom your heart was soon enchaine'd; Full soon your love was leapt from me, Full soon my place he had obtained. Soon came a third, your love to win, And we were out and he was in. Adieu Love, adieu Love, untrue Love, Untrue Love, untrue Love, adieu Love; Your mind is light, soon lost for new love.
Page ix - O just, reserve thy rod To chasten those that from thy laws retire. But choose aright, good Love, I thee require, The golden head Not that of lead ; Her heart is frost and must dissolve by fire.
