Thomas Campion
Shall I come, sweet Love, to thee,
When the ev'ning beams are set?
Campion quotes
I care not for these ladies,
That must be wooed and prayed;
Give me kind Amaryllis,
The wanton country maid.
Nature art disdaineth;
Her beauty is her own.
There is a garden in her face
Where roses and white lilies blow;
A heavenly paradise is that place,
Wherein all pleasant fruits do grow;
There cherries grow that none may buy,
Till Cherry-Ripe themselves do cry.

Campion Thomas quotes
Plead, Sleep, my cause, and make her soft like thee,
That she in peace may wake and pity me.
