Canzon 16. How have I forfeited thy kind regard
Anonymous
 
HOW have I forfeited thy kind regard,
That thy disdain should thus enage thy brow!
Which, whilom, was the scripture and the card
Whereon thou made thy game, and sealed thy vow
  Which, whilom, thou, with laurel vatical,        5
Ennobled hast (high signal of renown!),
Marrying my voice with thine, hast said withal,
“Be thou alone, alonely thou, AMPHION!”
  O how hath black night welked up this day!
My wasted hopes, why are they turned to graze        10
In pastures of despair? ZEPHERIA say,
Wherein have I, on love committed trespass!
  O, if in justice, thou must needs acquit me,
  Reward me with thy love! Sweet, heal me with thy pity!
