William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
Madrigal
Anonymous
 
        BROWN 1 is my love but graceful;
        And each renownèd whiteness,
Matched with thy lovely brown, loseth its brightness.
 
        Fair is my love, but scornful;
        Yet have I seen despisèd        5
Dainty white lilies, and sad flowers well prizèd.
 
Note 1. From the Second Book of Musica Transalpina, 1597. Prof. Schelling says: “The titles of Yonge’s two collections show that the words as well as the music were originally Italian.” [back]
