SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Go talk to her, sweet flower
Last Line: Keep you, sweet flower, alive.
Subject(s): Love; Flowers


I.

Go talk to her, sweet flower,
To whom I fain would talk;
Tell her I hour by hour
Pine on my own poor stalk.

II.

Tell her that I should live
Not quite so sore distressed,
If she to you would give
A throne upon her breast.

III.

Tell her that should she hie
To my parched plot to see
If I be dead, that I
No more should withered be.

IV.

If I were dead, her feet
My spirit would revive,
As may her bosom sweet
Keep you, sweet flower, alive.
