    The Passionate Pilgrim (Octavo, 1599)

    LIue with me and be my Loue,
    And we will all the pleasures proue
    That hilles and vallies, dales and fields,
    And all the craggy mountaines yeeld.

    340There will we sit vpon the Rocks,
    And see the Shepheards feed their flocks,
    By shallow Riuers, by whose fals
    Melodious birds sing Madrigals.

    There will I make thee a bed of Roses,
    345With a thousand fragrant poses,
    A cap of flowers, and a Kirtle
    Imbrodered all with leaues of Mirtle.
