William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
Camella
Anonymous
 
CAMELLA 1 fair tripped o’er the plain,
  I followed quickly after;
Have overtaken her I would fain,
  And kissed her when I caught her.
But hope being passed her to obtain,        5
  ‘Camella!’ loud I call:
She answered me with great disdain,
  ‘I will not kiss at all.’
 
Note 1. From Thomas Bateson’s Second Set of Madrigals, 1618. [back]
