Deare, though your minde stand so averse,
that no assaulting words can pierce,
your swift and angry flight forbeare.
What neede you doubt? What neede you feare?
In vaine I strive your thoughts to move,
but yet, stay, and heare me sweete love

Words may entreat you, not enforce;
speake tho’ I might till I were hoarse;
already ypu resolve, I know,
no gentle look or grace to show.
all must hapless rove,
but yet, stay, and heare me sweete love.

Since here no help nor hope remaines
to ease my griefe or end my paines,
I’ll seeke in shades to finde rest
for my heart, peace for my minde.
Go thou, more cruell far than faire,
and now, leave me to my despaire.
