I. I saw my lady weep ; Flow, my tears ; Sorrow, stay ; Die not before thy day ; Mourn!

If floods of tears ; Fine knacks for ladies ; Now cease, my wandering eyes ; Come ye heavy states of night ; White as lilies was her face ; Woeful heart ; A shepherd in a shade ; Faction that ever dwells ; Shall I sue? Toss not my soul ; Clear or cloudy ; Humour, say what mak'st thou here?14
