William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
Madrigal
Anonymous
 
YE 1 bubbling springs that gentle music makes
To lovers’ plaints with heart-sore throbs immixed,
Whenas my dear this way her pleasure takes,
  Tell her with tears how firm my love is fixed;
And, Philomel, report my timourous fears,        5
And, Echo, sound my heigh-ho’s in her ears:
But if she ask if I for love will die,
Tell her, “Good faith, good faith, good faith,—not I!”
 
Note 1. From Thomas Greaves’s Songs of Sundry Kinds, 1604. [back]
