William Stanley Braithwaite, ed. The Book of Elizabethan Verse. 1907.

In Praise of Two


FAUSTINA hath the fairer face,

And Phyllida the feater grace;

Both have mine eyes enriched:

This sings full sweetly with her voice;

Her fingers make as sweet a noise:

Both have mine ears bewitched.

Ah me! sith Fates have so provided,

My heart, alas, must be divided.
