William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
My Fair A-field
Anonymous
 
SEE 1 where my Love a-Maying goes
  With sweet dame Flora sporting!
She most alone with nightingales
  In woods delights consorting.
 
Turn again, my dearest!        5
  The pleasant’st air’s in meadows;
Else by the rivers let us breathe,
  And kiss amongst the willows.
 
Note 1. From Francis Pilkington’s First Set of Madrigals, 1614. [back]
