William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
Beauty’s Triumph
Anonymous
 
LIKE 1 two proud armies marching in the field,
Joining in the thundering fight, each scorns to yield;
So in my heart, your beauty and my reason,
One claims the crown, the other says ’tis treason.
But O! your beauty shineth as the sun;        5
And dazzled reason yields as quite undone.
 
Note 1. From Thomas Weelkes’ Madrigals of Five and Six Parts, 1600. [back]
