A MADRIGAL, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Amaryllis I did woo / and I courted phillis too
Last Line: Barred the hope of all the rest.

AMARYLLIS I did woo;
And I courted Phillis too;
Daphne for her love I chose;
Chloris, for that damask rose
In her cheek I held as dear;
Yea, a thousand liked, well near;
And, in love with all together,
Feared the enjoying either,
'Cause to be of one possessed,
Barred the hope of all the rest.
