Where art thou wanton, where art thou,
and I so long about have sought thee?
See where thy true love true
His heart to keep hath brought thee.
Then why dost thou hide thee?
O why dost thou hide thee?
Still I follow thee,
but thou fliest me;
O why fliest thou me?
Say unkind and do no more deride me.
