    The Passionate Pilgrim (Octavo, 1599)

    A belt of straw and Yuye buds,
    With Corall Clasps and Amber studs,
    350And if these pleasures may thee moue,
    Then liue with me, and be my Loue.

    Loues answere.

    IF that the World and Loue were young,
    And truth in euery shepheards toung,
    355These pretty pleasures might me moue,
    To liue with thee and be thy Loue.
