REIGIT OF ELIZABETH.                                                129
A copy in the British Museum Collection, and printed by Evans in Old Ballads, 1810, vol. iii., 184. Also, " The Shepherd's Delight," commencing—
" On yonder hill there stands a flower, Fair befall those dainty sweets ; And by that flower there stands a bower, Where all the heavenly muses meet," &c.
A copy in the Roxburghe Collection, vol. i., 388, and Evans, vol. i., 388.
Dear, when I from thee am gone, Gone are all my joys at once!
I loved thee, and thee alone, In whose love I joyed once.
While I live I needs must love, Love lives not when life is gone :
Now, at last, despair doth prove Love divided loveth none.
And although your sight I leave, Sight wherein my joys do lie,
Till that death do sense bereave, Never shall affection die.
