MADRIGAL, by            
First Line: When first before me she appeared
Last Line: I never would have loved at all.

WHEN first before me she appeared,
Her beauty well I saw; but that alone.
But when her speech I heard,
How she was more than fair was known,
Her charms I praise, but more her mind approve,
But never thought my soul she would enthral.
Had I foreseen how deeply I should love,
I never would have loved at all.
