Seccombe and Arber, comps.  Elizabethan Sonnets.  1904.
Introductory Ye modern Laureates, famoused for your writ
Canzon 1. Lulled in a heavenly Charm of pleasing Passions
Canzon 2. Though be thou limned in these discoloured lines
Canzon 3. When, from the tower whence I derive love’s heaven
Canzon 4. O then, Desire! Father of Jouissance!
Canzon 5. Anon, Fear (Sentinel of sad Discretion!
Canzon 6. My fate! O not my fault! hath me debarred
Canzon 7. More fair, but yet more cruel I thee deem
Canzon 8. Illuminating Lamps! Ye Orbs chrystallite!
Canzon 9. When as the Golden Waggoner had frayed
Canzon 10. How made I, then, attempt in courtly fashion
Canzon 11. How wert thou pleasèd with my Pastoral Ode!
Canzon 12. How often have mine eyes (thine eye’s apprentice
Canzon 13. Proud in thy love, how many have I cited
Canzon 14. Though like an exile from mine eyes divorced
Canzon 15. Ne’er were the silvery wings of my Desire
Canzon 16. How have I forfeited thy kind regard
Canzon 17. How shall I deck my Love in love’s habiliment
Canzon 18. Exacter, should it fortune I should pencil thee
Canzon 19. No! no, Zepheria! Fame is too rich a prize
Canzon 20. How often hath my pen (mine heart’s Solicitor!)
Canzon 21. And is it by immutable Decree
Canzon 22. It was not long ago, since, like a wanton
Canzon 23. Thy coral-coloured lips, how should I portray
Canzon 24. Unto the Muses, I resign my scroll
Canzon 25. Let not Disdain, thy soul unsanctify!
Canzon 26. When we, in kind embracements, had agreed
Canzon 27. Ne’er from a lofty pitch, hath made more speed
Canzon 28. When clear hath been thy brow, and free from wrinkle
Canzon 29. How many golden days! have I set free
Canzon 30. What! Shall I ne’er more see those Halcion days!
Canzon 31. Yet none shall equal me in my demerit
Canzon 32. Nature, I find, doth, once a year, hold market!
Canzon 33. Hither, chaste Phœbe’s Nymphs flocked in procession
Canzon 34. Since from the full feed of thy favour’s lease
Canzon 35. Since from the flowered sweets of every blessedness
Canzon 36. But if, with error and unjust suspect
Canzon 37. When last mine eyes dislodgèd from thy beauty
Canzon 38. From the revenue of thine eyes’ Exchequer
Canzon 39. And now, thou winged Ambassador of Wonder!
Canzon 40. But if She shall attend what fortunes sequelled
