Title: Like as from heaven
Composer: Alfonso Ferrabosco I
Description: The second part of I saw my lady weeping.
Original text and translations
Like as from heaven the dew full softly showering
Doth fall, and so refresh both fields and closes,
Filling the parched flowers with sap and savour,
So while she bathed the violets and the roses
Upon her lovely cheeks so freshly flowering,
The Spring renewed his force with her sweet favour.
