Madrigal, Davison's Poetical Rhapsody

Poem By Anonymous

MY Love in her attire doth show her wit,
It doth so well become her;
For every season she hath dressings fit,
   For Winter, Spring, and Summer.
   No beauty she doth miss
   When all her robes are on:
   But Beauty's self she is
   When all her robes are gone.

They swore to be true to each other,
As true as the stars above;

Night and day on me she cries;
Oh that I were where Helen lies
On fair Kirconnell lea!

Fair Annie

THE reivers they stole Fair Annie,
   As she walk'd by the sea;
But a noble knight was her ransom soon,
   Wi' gowd and white monie.
