First Line: Fair is my love when her fair golden hairs
Last Line: But this the worke of harts astonishment.
Alternate Author Name(s): Clout, Colin
Subject(s): Beauty

Fayre is my love, when her fayre golden heares
With the loose wynd ye waving chance to marke:
Fayre, when the rose in her red cheekes appeares,
Or in her eyes the fyre of love does sparke:
Fayre, when her brest, lyke a rich laden barke
With pretious merchandize, she forth doth lay:
Fayre, when that cloud of pryde, which oft doth dark
Her goodly light, with smiles she drives away.
But fayrest she, when so she doth display
The gate with pearles and rubyes richly dight,
Throgh which her words so wise do make their way,
To beare the message of her gentle spright.
The rest be works of Natures wonderment,
But this the worke of harts astonishment.
