Original text and translations
My Nymph the dear, and her my dear,
I follow my Nymph the dear,
and her my dear, I follow,
Trussed is her hair in gold, than gold more yellow.
Say, did you see her, the divinest creature
That ever was of feature?
O love the world sweet maker,
Change her mood and more humane minded make her.
