Lady, By You and Love I Am So Swayed

Lady, By You and Love I Am So Swayed


Lady, by you and love I am so swayed
Detained by a beauty passing true
And when my heart hath both bent and stayed
I still incline my every thought to you

Such lovely eyes and fair complexion bright
Freshest of hue, and hair of burnished brown
Your gracious person, valorous and right
Endowed by nature’s own bounteous crown
Which maketh me now to repine and say
Never excelled was such a blossom now
By rose or any other bough


Where lineage and true nobility
Reside and merit is surpassing, there
Doth also dwell a fair serenity,
for whereat such worth, can spring amiss no care

Well does such nature know sweet wiles to take
Their heart when yearning suitors mark their way
That sweet semblance you so unknowing make
Without a sigh I’ll never pass a day
Which maketh me now to repine and say
Never excelled was such a blossom now
By rose or any other bough


When they who brave the threat of tempest’s harm
Seek shelter neath the shade of noble trees
You who exceed the rest in grace and charm
Blest by the gods with vaunted seigniory
Accept their grateful fealty

Unblemished flower of nature’s pure delight
Men dare not love, and yet cannot refrain
So fair-adorned, that bloom of morning’s light
Unsullied by no undeserving swain
Which maketh me now to repine and say
Never excelled was such a blossom now
By rose or any other bough
