|Contents:||Must your fair inflaming eye ; If, when I die, to hell's eternal shade ; You meaner beauties of the night ; Sing aloud harmonious spheres (Strode?) ; Go thy ways since thou wilt go / Anon. --
Silly heart forbear ; No more shall meads be deck'd with flowr's ; Mark how the blushful morn ; Love and I of late did part ; Like hermit poor in pensive place obscure ; Neither sighs, nor tears, nor mourning ; Stay, silly heart, and do not break ; Nor com'st thou yet, my slothful love ; Tell me, shepherd, dost thou love / Nicholas Lanier --
What tears, dear prince, can serve ; Go perjur'd man, and if you e'er return ; Thou may'st be proud ; Howl not, you ghosts and furies, while I sing / Robert Ramsey --
Chloris sighed, and sang, and wept / Alfonso (?) Bales --
Weep no more, nor sigh, nor groan / Stephen Mace --
Cease not, thou heav'nly-voiced glorious creature ; Why sigh'st thou, shepherd / John Jenkins --
Wherefore peep'st thou, envious day ; Take, o take those lips away ; In a maiden time profess'd ; Languish and despair, my heart ; Turn, turn thy beauteous face away ; Pity of beauty in distress ; As tuned harp strings sad notes take ; Since love hath in thine and mine eye ; Awake, awake, the morn will never rise ; In the merry month of May ; Thou great and good, could I but rate ; From the fair Lavinian shore ; In a season all oppressed / John Wilson --
rise and grieve ; Speak, speak, at last reply ; Or you, or I, nature did wrong ; Hard-hearted fair, if thou wilt not consent ; Sweet stay awhile; why do you rise ; Break heart in twain, fair Ronile may see ; Transcendent beauty, thou that art ; O let me groan one word into thine ear ; Slide soft you silver floods ; Out upon it, I have lov'd ; Come from the dungeon to the throne ; Come my sweet while ev'ry strain ; Now the sun is fled ; Thou, o bright sun, who see'st all ; Wert thou yet fairer than thou art ; Whither are all her false oaths blown ; 'Tis but a frown, I prithee let me die ; No, no, fair heretic, it cannot be ; Will you know my mistress' face ; Sleep soft, you cold clay cinders that late clad ; Bid me but live, and I will live ; Go thou gentle whisp'ring wind ; When thou, poor excommunicate ; Have you e'er seen the morning sun ; O tell me love, o tell me fate ; Beauty and love once fell at odds ; O turn away those cruel eyes ; As Celia rested in the shade / Henry Lawes --
Thou may'st be proud ; Wilt thou forgive the sin where I begun ; Am I despis'd because you say ; Hang golden sleep upon her eyelids fair ; If that I for thy sweet sake ; You meaner beauties of the Night ; Rise, princely shepherd, and be arbiter / John Hilton --
Wake, my Adonis, do not die ; Bright Aurelia, I do owe ; Wilt thou be gone, thou heartless man ; Change, Platonics, change for shame ; How am I chang'd from what I was ; When Celia I intend to flatter ; Did not you once, Lucinda, vow / Charles Coleman --
Will Chloris cast her sun-bright eyes ; Go bid the swan in silence die ; Shepherd well met, I prithee tell / Simon Ives --
Why should great beauty virtuous fame desire ; Why so pale and wan, fond lover ; No. no, fair heretic, it needs must be ; To whom shall I complain; to men or gods ; Pleasures, beauty, youth attend ye ; Faith, be no longer coy ; Gather ye rosebuds while ye may ; Come Adonis, come away ; Charon, o Charon, hear a wretch opress'd / William Lawes --
As life what is so sweet ; Go and bestride the southern wind ; Pow'rful Morpheus, let thy charms ; Victorious beauty, though your eyes ; Since 'tis my fate to be thy slave ; Look back Castara from thin eye / William Webb --
Blow gently passion in my fair one's breast ; If any live that fain would prove ; Forbear fond swain, I cannot love / William Caesar (Alias Smegergill) --
Drowsy Phoebus, come away ; Have pity, grief: I cannot pay ; Cruel, but once again / George Jeffreys --
Wert thou fairer than thou art ; This lady ripe and fair and fresh ; When the chill cherocco blows ; I can love for an hour when I'm at leisure / John Atkins --
Mistake me not, I am as cold as hot ; O that mine eyes could melt into a flood / Thomas Brewer --
What means this strangeness now of late / Thomas Blagrave --
Tell me not that I die, or live by thee ; Lay that sullen garland by thee / John Taylor --
Why will you swear I am forsworn / Thomas Charles --
I will not trust thy tempting graces / Jeremy Savile --
Way, dearest, should you weep ; The glories of our birth and state --
Fret on, fond Cupid, curse thy feeble bow ; Dost see how unregarded now / John Goodgroome --
In vain, fair Chloris, you design / Lady Mary Dering --
He that did ever scorn love's might / Robert Smith --
Now Whitehall's in a grave / John Cave --
The morning doth waste / John Gamble --
Admit, thou darling of mine eyes / Roger Hill --
Ah Chloris, would the gods allow / Alfonso Marsh.
