Phillis by Thomas Lodge (1558–1625)
    Front Matter
I. Oh pleasing thoughts, apprentices of love
II. You sacred sea-nymphs pleasantly disporting
III. In fancy’s world an Atlas have I been
IV. Long hath my sufferance laboured to enforce
V. Ah pale and dying infant of the spring
VI. It is not death which wretched men call dying
VII. How languisheth the primrose of love’s garden!
VIII. No stars her eyes to clear the wandering night
IX. The dewy roseate Morn had with her hairs
X. The rumour runs that here in Isis swim
XI. My frail and earthly bark, by reason’s guide
XII. Ah, trees, why fall your leaves so fast?
XIII. Love guides the roses of thy lips
XIV. I wrote in Mirrha’s bark, and as I wrote
XVII. Ah, fleeting weal! ah, sly deluding sleep
XVIII. As where two raging venoms are united
XIX. Thou tyrannising monarch that dost tire
XX. Some praise the looks, and others praise the locks
XXI. Ye heralds of my heart, mine ardent groans
XXII. Fair art thou, Phillis, ay, so fair, sweet maid
XXIII. Burst, burst, poor heart! Thou hast no longer hope
XXIV. No glory makes me glorious or glad
XXV. I wage the combat with two mighty foes
XXVI. I ’ll teach thee, lovely Phillis, what love is
XXVII. Fair eyes, whilst fearful I your fair admire
XXVIII. Not causeless were you christened, gentle flowers
XXIX. I feel myself endangered beyond reason
XXX. I do compare unto thy youthly clear
XXXI. Devoid of reason, thrall to foolish ire
XXXII. A thousand times to think and think the same
XXXIII. When first sweet Phillis, whom I must adore
XXXIV. I would in rich and golden-coloured rain
XXXV. I hope and fear, I pray and hold my peace
XXXVI. If so I seek the shades, I presently do see
XXXVII. These fierce incessant waves that stream along my face
XXXVIII. Who lives enthralled to Cupid and his flame
XXXIX. My matchless mistress, whose delicious eyes
XL. Resembling none, and none so poor as I
