Parthenophil and Parthenophe
Madrigal 23. Phœbus, rich father of eternal light!
Barnabe Barnes (1569?–1609)
 
PHŒBUS, rich father of eternal light!
    And in his hand, a wreath of Heliochrise
          He brought, to beautify those tresses,
    Whose train, whose softness, and whose gloss more bright,
    APOLLO’s locks did overprize.        5
Thus, with this garland, whiles her brows he blesses
    The golden shadow, with his tincture,
Coloured her locks, I gilded with the cincture.
