|Contents:||v. 5. pt. I. I saw my lady weep ; Flow, my tears ; Sorrow, stay ; Die not before thy day ; Mourn! Day is with darkness fled ; Time's eldest son, Old age ; Then sit thee down and say ; When others sing Venite ; Praise blindness, eyes ; O sweet woods --
v. 6. pt. II. If floods of tears ; Fine knacks for ladies ; Now cease, my wandering eyes ; Come ye heavy states of night ; White as lilies was her face ; Woeful heart ; A shepherd in a shade ; Faction that ever dwells ; Shall I sue? Toss not my soul ; Clear or cloudy ; Humour, say what mak'st thou here?
