1.
Take, Oh Take Those Lips Away
Take, oh take those lips away,
That so sweetly were forsworn,
And those eyes, the break of day,
Lights that do mislead the morn:

2.
Hear, Ye Ladies
HEAR, ye ladies that despise
   What the mighty Love has done;
Fear examples and be wise:
   Fair Callisto was a nun;

Love's Emblems

   Golden yellow, gaudy blue,

Away, Delights
AWAY, delights! go seek some other dwelling,
   For I must die.

GOD Lyaeus, ever young,
Ever honour'd, ever sung,

Sleep
COME, Sleep, and with thy sweet deceiving
Lock me in delight awhile;
Let some pleasing dreams beguile
All my fancies; that from thence

10.

CYNTHIA, to thy power and thee
   We obey.
Joy to this great company!
   And no day
