William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
Passions of Desire
Anonymous
 
HOW shall I then gaze on my mistress’ eyes?
My thoughts must have some vent, else heart will break.
My tongue would rust, as in my mouth it lies,
If eyes and thoughts were free and then not speak.
Speak then! and tell the passions of desire,        5
Which turns mine eyes to floods, my thoughts to fire.
