William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
Love’s Immortality
Anonymous
 
CROWNÈD 1 with flowers I saw fair Amaryliss
  By Thyrsis sit, hard by a fount of crystal;
And with her hand, more white than snow or lilies,
  On sand she wrote, ‘My faith shall be immortal:’
And suddenly a storm of wind and weather        5
Blew all her faith and sand away together.
 
Note 1. From William Byrd’s Psalms, Songs, and Sonnets, 1611. [back]
