Title: Why do you seek by flight?
Composer: Michael East
Description: Part 2 of 2 part madrigal, part 1 is 'Why runs away my love?'
Original text and translations
Why do you seek by flight me to eschew,
whom to yourself, you with your beauty drew?
If I did seek your love by subtle feigning,
then might you run away from me disdaining.
