Ah! cannot sighs not tearsRate it:
Ah! cruel AmarillisRate it:

All pleasure is of this conditionRate it:
And though my love aboundingRate it:
As fair as mornRate it:
As matchless beautyRate it:
Away, thou shalt not love meRate it:
Ay me; can every rumourRate it:
Change me, O heav'nsRate it:
Dear pity, how, ah!Rate it:
Despiteful thus unto myself, I languishRate it:
Die, hapless manRate it:
Down in a valley as Alexis tripsRate it:
Draw on, Sweet NightRate it:
Flora gave me fairest flowersRate it:
Fly not so swift, my dearRate it:
Fly, Love, aloftRate it:
Happy streams, whose trembling fallRate it:
Happy, O happy heRate it:
Hard destinies are love and beauty partedRate it:
I always begRate it:
I am quite tired with my groansRate it:
I fall, I fallRate it:
I live, and yet methinks I do not breatheRate it:

Where most my thoughtsRate it:
Ye that do live in pleasuresRate it:
Yet, sweet, take heedRate it:
