O Sweet Suitor! From whose lips honey'd words do fly
Like fairies from flowers in the dusky night
I would cease thy voice with a kiss and a sigh
And hold thee in my arms till Apollo's first light.

Though I have sworn to be like Diane
That goddess of the moon untouched by man
I found myself by Cupid's arrow bitten
When upon your image I was smitten
In utter agony I'm entrenched when without thee
O that I were of love's bondage free!
Or that we may in sweet harmony be
Like the moon and the stars over yonder tree
O Sweet Sir, lay your head upon mine heaving breast
That I may your auburn locks stroke and caress
My fingers shall sweep aside yon hair
To better kiss thy countenance fair
What need have I of food or wine
When upon your flesh, I might dine
