Parthenophil and Parthenophe
Madrigal 12. Like to the Mountains, are mine high desires
Barnabe Barnes (1569?–1609)
 
LIKE to the Mountains, are mine high desires;
      Level to thy love’s highest point:
  Grounded on faith, which thy sweet grace requires.
      For Springs, tears rise in endless source.
  For Summer’s flowers, Love’s fancies I appoint.        5
      The Trees, with storms tossed out of course,
  Figure my thoughts, still blasted with Despair.
      Thunder, lightning, and hail
  Make his trees mourn: thy frowns make me bewail!
This only difference! Here, fire; there, snows are!        10
