Poems of Sir Edward Dyer

Coridon to his Phillis

Alas my hart, mine eye hath wrong├Ęd thee,
Presumptious eye, to gaze on Phillis face:
Whose heavenly eye no mortall man may see
But he must die, or purchase Phillis grace.
Poor Coridon, the Nimph whose eye doth moove thee,
Dooth love to draw, but is not drawne to love thee.

Her beautie, Nature's pride, and sheepheards praise,

[Hata Bildir]
