Farewell disdainful, since no love avails me,
O sharp and bitter anguish,
What discord grief assails me?
Needs I must part, alas, yet parting makes me languish.
But yet it pleaseth thee.
Therefore unkind, now adieu, there is no remedy.
O come again, O come again return thee:
No, false Love, thy flames no more shall burn me.
No, be still content thee:
when I am gone, perhaps, then wilt thou repent thee.
