    The Passionate Pilgrim (Octavo, 1599)

    270Cleare wels spring not, sweete birds sing not,
    Greene plants bring not forth their die,
    Heards stands weeping, flocks all sleeping,
    Nimphes blacke peeping fearefully:
    All our pleasure knowne to vs poore swaines:
    275All our merrie meetings on the plaines,
    All our euening sport from vs is fled,
    All our loue is lost, for loue is dead,
    Farewell sweet loue thy like nere was,
    For a sweet content the cause all my woe,
    280 Poore Coridon must liue alone,
    Other helpe for him I see that there is none.
