William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
Willing Bondage
Anonymous
 
HER 1 hair the net of golden wire,
  Wherein my heart, led by my wandering eyes
  So fast entangled is that in no wise
It can, nor will, again retire;
  But rather will in that sweet bondage die        5
  Than break one hair to gain her liberty.
 
Note 1. From Thomas Bateson’s Second Set of Madrigals, 1618. [back]
