Note 1. This song is quoted in Fletchers The Bloody Brother, act v. sc. 2, with the following additional stanza:
Hide, oh, hide those hills of snow,
Which thy frozen bosom bears,
On whose tips the pinks that grow
Are of those that April wears;
But first set my poor heart free,
Bound in those icy chains by thee.
The distinct inferiority of the second stanza to the first leads Mr. Bullen to think that the former was written by Shakespeare and the latter by Fletcher. See also Mr. Swinburnes note on this song in A Study of Shakespeare, p. 205. [back]
