O cruel Amarillis,
 +
O nymph, more sweet and fair
 +
Than fairest lillies are;
 +
Since speaking I offend,
 +
Silent I'll seek my end,
 +
But yet for me the hills
 +
And ev'ry vale shall loudly cry.
 +
Fountains shall weep for me;
 +
Hoarse winds to ev'ry tree
 +
Shall tell my mournful tale;
 +
And in my cheek all pale
 +
Shall grief and pity speak:
 +
And, should all other things be mute,
 +
My hapless end shall speak,
 +
My death shall tell thee
 +
Thou my heart did'st break.}}

O cruel Amarillis,
O nymph, more sweet and fair
Than fairest lillies are;
Since speaking I offend,
Silent I'll seek my end,
But yet for me the hills
And ev'ry vale shall loudly cry.
Fountains shall weep for me;
Hoarse winds to ev'ry tree
Shall tell my mournful tale;
And in my cheek all pale
Shall grief and pity speak:
And, should all other things be mute,
My hapless end shall speak,
My death shall tell thee
Thou my heart did'st break.
