Subject(s): Music & Musicians


SWEETEST of sweets, I thank you: when displeasure
Did through my bodie wound my minde,
You took me thence, and in your house of pleasure
A daintie lodging me assign'd.

Now I in you without a bodie move,
Rising and falling with your wings:
We both together sweetly live and love,
Yet say sometimes, God help poore kings!

Comfort, I'le die; for if you poste from me,
Sure I shall do so, and much more;
But if I travell in your companie,
You know the way to heavens doore.
