Title: Ah me! my mistress scorns my love
Composer: Thomas Bateson
Original text and translations
Ah me! my mistress scorns my love.
I fear she will most cruel prove.
Ah me! I weep, I sigh, I grieve and groan;
Yet she regardeth not my moan.
Then love, adieu, it fits not me,
To weep for her that laughs at thee.
