William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
In Praise of Two
Anonymous
 
FAUSTINA 1 hath the fairer face,
And Phyllida the feater grace;
  Both have mine eyes enriched:
This sings full sweetly with her voice;
Her fingers make as sweet a noise:        5
  Both have mine ears bewitched.
Ah me! sith Fates have so provided,
My heart, alas, must be divided.
 
Note 1. From Davison’s Poetical Rhapsody, 1602. [back]
