EnglandsHelicon M3v


From those cleare notes which freely may reioyce. Then poure out plaints, and in one word say this: (10) Helplesse his plaint, who spoiles him selfe of blisse.

FINIS. S. Phil. Sidney.

¶The Sheepheards braule, one halfe aunswering the other. +

1. W E loue, and haue our loues rewarded?
2. We loue, and are no whit regarded.
1. We finde most sweet affections snare:
2. That sweete but sower dispairefull care.
1. (5) Who can dispaire, whom hope dooth beare?
2. And who can hope, that feeles dispaire?
All. As without breath no pipe dooth moue: No Musique kindly without loue.

FINIS. S. Phil. Sidney.

¶ Dorus his comparisons. +

M Y Sheepe are thoughts, which I both guide and serue, Their pasture is faire hills of fruitlesse loue: On barren sweetes they feede, and feeding sterue, I waile their lot, but will not other proue. (5) My sheepe-hooke is wanne hope, which all vpholds: My weedes, desires, cut out in endlesse folds. +What wooll my Sheepe shall beare, while thus they liue: In you it is, you must the iudgement giue.

FINIS. S. Phil. Sidney.
