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. - 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?
